A snake had met its match. Hungry, the snake managed to catch a fish. Happy at the heavy brunch, it pushed the mouthful fish.
But, its happiness was short-lived. The fish had its revenge at its nemesis when one of its sharp bones got stuck in the soft oral cavity. With in a moment, the feast turned into an unending torment with fish stuck in the mouth and the snake unable to either gulp down or throw out.
The snake, writhing in pain, tried to wriggle out of the sticky situation, but to no avail. After hours of effort, resigned to its fate, the snake slithered into the bushes with its death stuck in its mouth.
For the people of Tanuku in West Godavari, this painful ordeal of the snake was a source of unending entertainment and they watched this gladiatorial spectacle with amusement.
