New snake species earns name — ‘dinner’ — for where UT Arlington professor found it – Dallas News

What’s amazing about the discovery wasn’t that the snake was found in the belly of another snake. Coral snakes, the one that ate the “mystery dinner snake,” are known to eat other snakes. (It makes sense, Campbell said: If you’re a coral snake, another snake is the easiest shape of food for you to eat.)

“What makes this one special is that it came from a very, very remote area that few people have been into,” Campbell said. “And as it turns out, it’s a little snake that you can’t place in any group.”
