Next Time You Want to Mess with a Porcupine, Remember This Boa Constrictor

This video is truly painful to watch.

A video has emerged from South America that captured images of an unfortunate boa constrictor that got stuck with dozens of porcupine quills. The video description states that the snake had made an attempt to attack and eat the porcupine, but evidently failed.

The porcupine’s quills clearly did a strong job of protecting itself from the snake attack. Without video of the actual interaction between the snake and porcupine, it’s difficult to speculate, but the aftermath is clear.

Let this be a lesson to respect porcupines, because the video looks extremely painful for the snake.
