What is a constrictor snake?


Did you know that 17 people have died in the US due to constrictor snake related incidents since 1978? The picture above is our Brown banded Black King snake and it
kills it prey by squeezing it to death. The snake wraps itself around its prey and every time it move or breaths, the grip gets tighter. Pythons and Boa Constrictors use that method while rattlesnakes bite and stand back waiting for the poison to work.

This probably grosses you out but it is life in our woods and desert areas, the law of survival. This snakes are able to dislocate their jaw and swallow prey many times their size.
