This snake bit off more than it could chew, and that might be just the beginning of the story.
See, scientists have caught a snake in France eating a fish that had a bunch of spines stuck in its throat.
This is not a joke: The dorsal spines of the fish were too long to prevent the snake from swallowing.
And while you might think that the snake was just unlucky in choosing the wrong fish dinner, the reality is a little more complicated.
According to the authors of the study , fish-eating snakes are becoming more common and pose a real threat to the survival of all snake species.
Their study is published in Herpetology Notes.
