This snake immobilizes its prey by wrapping his body around it
The ladder snake is a constrictor snake. It relentlessly pursues its prey, against which it will launch a ferocious and fatal attack.
Thanks to olfactory sensors in its tongue, the constrictor snakes detects a mouse trail that will lead it to its burrow.
Once the entrance has been located, it simply needs to be attentive: dinner could be hiding anywhere.
After the fatal blow, this constrictor snake immobilizes and crushes its victim, until its heart stops.
The reptile then swallows its prey whole: it will take at least a week for it to be completely digested.
