A weird and bizarre thing happened Alice Spring Reptile Center in Alice Spring, Australia. And you probably are wondering what this is all about. Actually what you are looking at is dead skin of a snake. Well!! That was obvious (you might be thinking).

If you look closely something is moving inside the skin, that is nothing but the snake itself!!

Yes!! That’s the weird part.

This snake, the Stimson’s python “Stimmy” in Alice Spring Reptile Center was stuck in its own dead skin. How did this happen is still unknown.

But this incident is reminding me about an ancient symbol of snake eating its own tail called “Ouroboros” which signifies the eternal cycle of creation and destruction.

Sad! The snake was trapped inside his own skin for about three hours until he poked a hole in it and got free.

“It actually looks like a steering wheel. Have been in reptile business a long time and have never seen anything quite like it. Have seen similar but nothing as perfect as this.” said Alice Spring Reptile Center in a Facebook post.
