This Boa Tried to Eat a Porcupine And Got More Than It Bargained For.
Boa constrictors aren’t venomous, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t dangerous! Constrictor snakes use stealth to approach unsuspecting victims, then wrap around their victims and use strong muscles to crush and suffocate them. It’s like a hug of death.
There is a large population of boas in Florida, stemming from escaped pets that have bred over the years. However, this video was captured in Brazil. Remember: if you hug your food before you eat it, make sure it’s not covered in spikes! (Duh).

As you can see, these are the results of that fateful match. It’s not a pretty sight. Fear of snakes is called ophiophobia. Fear of needles, on the other hand, is aichmophobia. If you have one of those fears, this picture is frightening. If you have both, it’s terrifying:.

#5 - Porcupine Facts
Porcupines are small, furry animals native to North America. Their backs and tails are covered in sharp, barbed spikes made of a material similar to your fingernails. When the spikes stick in you, the barbs can go in, but resist going out. This makes them very dangerous.
