Trapped Snake Thanks Its Rescuers

(Video Link)

When people rescue animals, sometimes the animals express their gratitude toward their benefactors. We've previously seen this with a dog, a dolphin, and a sea turtle. And now we can see this expression of thanks from a snake.

Two teenage boys in the US found a snake trapped in a net. They patiently cut it free with a knife. When the snake was free, it regurgitated a whole frog that it had swallowed. It was surely a gift offered to the boys to repay them for their kindness. Unfortunately, the video ends before the boys partake of their reward.

Content warning: a lot of foul language.

One of the primary causes of regurgitation is handling a snake too soon after it has eaten. The general consensus is give the snake at least 48 hours after it has eaten its meal before you handle it. It seems for the first 48 hours after eating, a snake feels particularly vulnerable to attack, so when it is handled it is much more likely to regurgitate its meal so it can flee.
