Coral snake stung by bee while eating another snake


A video clip was recently shared on Twitter by Evangeline Cummings involving two snakes and a bee.

“I believe I just witnessed a bee, stinging a coral snake while the coral was dining on a rat snake and I need your support to process this,” Cummings wrote while sharing the video. She also tagged a few experts on the subject to get a clear understanding of the incident, reports Hindustan Times.

Shared on October 17, the video shows a coral snake eating another snake, while both hang from a tree - while some bees are buzz around the reptiles. Within seconds, the coral snake leaves its food and thrashes wildly. Considering what mentioned in the caption, the snake’s reaction is a result of a sting from a bee.
