It’s Only A Viral Sensation

Does anyone know Ice Cube’s number? Because we might be needing his help. A new viral video making all the rounds on the internet is that of a python giving the death hug to a van. Yep a real like Anaconda movie without Jennifer Lopez running around. The reason why this has gone viral is our fear of snakes, or Ophidiophobia; is an extreme phobia. Even though you don’t suffer from that ailment, happening upon this situation in the video is enough to initially give you a few symptoms. If you haven’t seen it, let me set it up for you. You’re walking through the forest and suddenly you happen upon a giant snake wrapped around a delivery van trying to squeeze it to death. Sounds fantastical, doesn’t it? Well, it is.

TikTik user thegemsfamily has given us a fright with their video of the above scenario. In actuality, the whole thing is just a part of an art installation for a zoo. I was excited when I heard about it because my first thought was Cryptozoology, but it wasn’t. 

Huge snakes do live in rainforests, woodland and grasslands – so if this video has sparked a new kind of fear in you, you're probably better off avoiding those areas. Remember, the worlds largest snake recorded is a Anaconda measuring 10 meters (or if you use freedom units, 32 feet, 8 inches). And that boys and girls is why I don’t live nor plan on visiting a rainforest.
