Toddler Chews Snake’s Head Off

Maybe now we know what God meant in Genesis when he told the serpent that Eve’s offspring would “crush his head”: an Israeli toddler named Imad was found Saturday chewing the head of a 12-inch-long poisonous snake. The 13-month-old boy’s mother found him with the snake between his six teeth, its head nearly severed, and brought the neighborhood running with her screams. “It was really scary, just horrible," the baby’s aunt said. A neighbor snatched the snake away and killed it. Doctors said the boy was totally fine, and that the snake probably didn’t bite—and didn’t release much venom—because the cold weather made it groggy.
