 Centipede Eats Snake from Inside Out After Being Swallowed

As per a post mortem report conducted by a group of researchers, a centipede actually ate the snake that swallowed it from inside out.

The scientist saw that a dead nose-horned viper where a centipede's head was sticking out of its damaged abdomen, Discovery News reported.

The scientists said that the entire volume of snake's body was occupied by the creature.

The authors of the study added that this invertebrate was extremely tough as it was very difficult to kill a full-grown Scolopendra and therefore, they could not dismiss the possibility that the snake had swallowed the centipede alive, and that, paradoxically, the prey had eaten its way through the snake, almost reaching for its freedom.
