Wow, I never thought it would be that quick! The explanation afterwards about what it does to a human is not really appetizing either. Truly a nasty way to die.

BTW, props to the cameraman. Guy was pretty close to that snake being milked... I'd probably just have settled for a jittery zoom-in from far, far away...
