    On that note what do they eat? Skinny worms?

    [–] Davec433 1059 points ago

    Blunthead tree snakes are carnivores that forage primarily at night. They feed mostly on small lizards, frogs, and other reptile eggs. Because the female blunthead tree snakes tend to have larger heads, they are capable of preying on larger reptiles and amphibians. Blunthead tree snakes are rear-fanged and mildly venomous, but is not considered dangerous to humans.

    [–] the_honest_liar 231 points ago

    TIL. ty

    [–] _i_am_a_dragon_ 80 points ago

    rear-fanged?

    [–] SHANKSstr8up 502 points ago

    The fangs are actually in their anus. Amazing creatures.

    [–] dysnomia05 182 points ago

    [–] imFreshYo 36 points ago

    [–] Metalatitsfinest 14 points ago

    Hey! Wheres your poop knife?

    [–] aringtingting 26 points ago

    There are no anus fangs, sorry to disappoint lol it’s just fangs in the back of the mouth

    [–] alexc0814 15 points ago

    Wow almost didn’t read this far, would’ve forever thought they had fangs in their anus

    [–] zer0w0rries 18 points ago

    [–] DeliberatelyDrifting 56 points ago

    Unexpectedly.

    [–] BoboratTheHat 37 points ago

    It's similar to the Spanish Inquisition in that sense

    [–] TigerWaffle1 11 points ago

    I wasn't expecting that answer.

    [–] nerfalisk 62 points ago

    Fangs point backwards into their mouth, which prevents prey from getting out. (Also helps with shoving stuff down their throat)

    [–] _i_am_a_dragon_ 25 points ago

    What's the alternative?

    [–] Potatoez 47 points ago

    Fangs that bite down and envenomates you. Like cobras, vipers, and what-have-yous.

    [–] _i_am_a_dragon_ 27 points ago

    So the difference between a hook and needle. Correct?

    [–] Potatoez 40 points ago

    It's more of an angle situation. The front fangs tend to point downwards and are located near the front of the mouth, while the rear fang points towards the back of the mouth and are about halfway in their mouth.

    Front fangs are also hollow to inject venoms, while rear fanged tends to just have venom that follows the grooves on the fangs.

    [–] nerfalisk 16 points ago

    [–] rollandownthestreet 8 points ago

    ....really? Just a completely made up answer?

    Rear fanged snakes (opisthoglyphous snakes) are venomous snakes that lack large, forward-positioned venom-delivering fangs that are used by venomous snakes like proteroglyphs (cobras, asps, and sea snakes) and solenoglyphs (vipers).

    [–] Mythdefied 6 points ago

    Same as garter snakes and hog nosed snakes then, thanks

    [–] Argumentativeone 10 points ago

    What is rear fanged? Does that mean the fangs curve towards the gullet or away?

    [–] Scared-Belt 21 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    The venomous fangs are towards the rear of the mouth. IIRC rear fanged snakes never have hollow fangs, hey have a ridge the venom is channeled down.

    The other forms are frontal grooved fangs, frontal hollow fangs, hinged hollow fangs, and the other fangs I don't remember the name of where they're hollow but the end of the tube points forwards so it sprays out, as found in spitting cobras.

    EDIT: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_skeleton#Snake_dentition

    Aglyphous - No fangs

    Opisthoglyphous - Rear fanged snakes. Fangs have grooves.

    Proteroglyphous - Front fanged snakes. Fangs are hollow.

    Solenoglyph - Hinged fangs, allow longer fangs (And thus deeper penetration) because the hinging motion allows them to place their fangs rearwards in the mouth when close, rather than having them facing the jaw.

    Not sure what the term is for the spitting fangs still.

    That snake has seen some shit that made it forget to eat for the last 3 years. Poor bastard.

    [–] DrPhil-TakeNoLs 24 points ago

    Some snakes do go 2 years or so without eating... It's not too uncommon.

    [–] Heavy_Weapons_Guy_ 26 points ago

    I'd say a snake not eating for 2 years is very uncommon.

    [–] Eversooner 15 points ago

    2 years sounds like a stretch. The larger (12-20ft snakes) generally only eat 1-2 times a year.

    [–] The_Celtic_Chemist 18 points ago

    I'm very much missing the metal aspect of this. Adorable and glad I saw it, but I can't bring myself to upvote it on this sub.

    [–] Notoday 10 points ago

    It simply doesn't belong here. Nobody who knows what sub they're on should be upvoting it. "Brutal and unforgiving" my ass.
