Stomach-churning moment small snake regurgitates giant frog

This is the moment a small snake throws up a huge frog nearly one-third of its size. The small snake, a green keelback, managed to hunt and swallow a giant India bullfrog frog. But it was not able to enjoy its meal for long. The two-year-old year and one-and-a-half feet snake was spotted by a farmer in his backyard at a village in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, India. Thinking that the snake was venomous the terrified farmer called a snake rescuer, Akash Jadhav, to catch the reptile. When Jadhav reached the spot he saw that the snake had a huge bulge in its belly and was unable to move. The snake then started to regurgitate its prey and as astonished villagers watched a huge six-inch long frog came out of its mouth. Jadhav identified the snake as a green keelback and told the villagers that it was not venomous at all. “Snakes turn sluggish after feeding. If they feel threatened, they throw up their meal to escape quickly,” said Jadhav. He put the snake in a bag and released it later in a nearby forest.

Massive boulder falls on busy motorway during landslide in northern India

A massive boulder came rolling down the mountain, hurled across the road and fell into the river Sarju below. A video shot by an onlooker captures the horrified shrieks of onlookers.

Hilarious moment men use rope to operate broken windscreen wipers in heavy rain

This is the amusing moment two men used a rope to operate the broken windscreen wipers of their truck. Jing Krittayakorn, 20, and pal Tea Kittyot, 20, were driving the beaten-up old pick-up truck in Sa Kaeo, Thailand yesterday (August 19). With heavy monsoon rain they faced a treacherous commute between farms in the 30-year-old vehicle. That was until quick-thinking Jing used a tatty-old red rope to tie the wipers - which he then looped through both front windows. While Jing was driving, his friend Tea was tasked with manually operating the single wiper. Jing said: ''It wouldn't have been safe to drive with a broken wiper. ''We made this limited edition windscreen. We weren't driving far. So this was the best we could do until we could fix the truck.'' The 30-year-old Isuzu TFR needs dozens of improvements and is unlikely to pass an MOT by western standards. But Jing said they will keep doing ''whatever it takes'' to keep the trusty pick-up truck on the road. He added: ''There are lots of unusual ways to fix a car and keep them working. We will keep this car alive for as long as we can. I don't think this truck will impress many girls, but it has been good for us.''
