Snake spits out live gecko
    2017-August-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THIS is the incredible moment a snake spits out a living, breathing gecko after two of his pals appear to gang up on the reptile.

Footage from Bangkok, Thailand, showed the green tree snake had already swallowed the Tokay gecko and was ready to devour it.

But two fellow lizards desperate to rescue their friend began cautiously biting at the serpent — even with the third lizard clearly already lodged in the snake’s throat.

Onlooker Sawet Numpet, 31, then gently prodded the reptile with a stick before it uncoiled and released the suffocated and slime-covered lizard from its jaws.

The gecko was an unusual shade of red and barely breathing after its ordeal but miraculously sprang back to life and scampered away along the bark to rejoin his pals.

The disappointed snake fell to the ground after being derived of its dinner.

Numpet, who filmed the incident, said: “I work at a factory and behind there are lots of trees and jungle area. I was taking a break from work with friends on Monday evening.

“We saw the snake and the two lizards and it was unusual, because the two lizards were watching and something strange was happening.

“They were attacking the snake and then I saw it had swallowed something, so we watched and then I hit the snake with a stick.

“The lizard came out and it was red instead of blue and orange. It was injured and looked like it had no strength, but it came back to life.”

The snake, despite appearing to be green, is actually called a Golden Tree Snake or a Flying Snake. They prey on lizards, rodents, bird eggs and sometimes bats.
