Now Accepting Intern Applications

posted by on August 27 at 10:22 AM

A three-metre (10ft) python has killed a student zookeeper who let the snake out of its enclosure in Venezuela while working a night shift at the zoo.

Horrified colleagues at the Caracas zoo had to beat the snake to make it release the body of Erick Arrieta, whose head it was swallowing, local media reported.

Marks on the biology student’s wrist suggested the snake had bitten him before crushing him to death.

Dude, at that point don't you just pull out a Snickers and watch?

Ouch. Random thought alert: That reminds me of a Buffy episode where some guy was swallowed by a python. Trouble is that they showed that the python started swallowing him by the foot, swallowing up one leg as he proceeded. They never explained how the python continued to swallow him once it got up to the guy's crotch.

He must have done something to provoke that python.

But chances are, the python was just being a python.

Seriously there's got to be a pit bull analogy.

At first, it was just funny, then I noticed the category. Very nice.
