Will it ever get out?

Sometimes you just get so caught up with yourself.

That’s literally what happened to one snake shedding its skin at Alice Springs Reptile Centre. The Stimson’s Python began going through the molting process and ended up stuck in a loop of its own skin. Its tail skin ended up inside its old mouth skin, trapping the serpent in a scaly prison as he went round and round.

Alice Springs had never seen this sort of phenomenon before, but the snake eventually broke free from itself.
