This is a true story about a woman who had a pet snake – a Python, which she loved so much. The snake was 4 meters long and looked healthy. However, one day her unusual pet just stopped eating. This lack of appetite in the snake continued over a few weeks. The desperate woman tried everything she could and offered anything that a snake would like to strangle and eat. Nothing worked, and finally the woman took her loving pet to the veterinarian as a last resort.
The vet listened to the woman carefully and asked, “Does your snake sleep with you at night, wrap around you closely and spread out throughout its length?”
The woman was surprised and with a lot of hope she said, “Yes! Yes! It does so every day and it makes me so sad because I feel that it is asking something from me, and I am unable to help it feel better.”
She slept with her snake regularly and then the vet told her something shocking and the most unexpected. “Madam, your pet is not sick; it is just preparing to eat you”
Yes, the python wasn’t sick but it has been preparing to eat her instead!
“Every time, it is creeping, “hugging” you and wrapping itself around your body, it is checking your size to weigh how a great meal you are and how it must be prepared before it can attack you. And yes, it does not eat, in order to have enough space to digest you more easily,” the vet said.
The lady went into a trauma hearing this -she couldn’t believe that the pet she had taken care of like a child would do this to her, however, she believed the vet, still she remains frightened for a lifetime, but she is lucky that she took the Python to the Vet on time – so her life was saved.
The Python was handed over to some forest officials and left in the forest
This story comes with a moral –
In our life too, people close to you, whom you are very affectionate with, can, have mean intentions. You need to identify the snake around you and their true intent. Hugs and kisses are not always honest. People are known to use their close ones as a stepping stone to success; you may be sacrificed and taken undue advantage without your knowledge for them to grow.
Don’t fear the enemy that attacks you, but beware of the fake friend that hugs you because everyone may not be lucky like this lady who was saved on time.
