Just another day at Midwest Tongs and Monkey Island Rescue, we thought. The life I lead is different than some but it is rewarding. As the baby Gibbon and myself was finishing up breakfast heading to the shop. As we came in my sanctuary/animal care keeper said she had to run home quickly to meet the unexpected AT&T guy that was working on some cable problems. She had started feeding the venomous snakes and said she would be back in a bit. At the same time the phone company had showed up here to do some work as well. When I came back I glanced at one of the cages and did not see the two Levantine vipers. I only seen two tails. After looking closer one had the other 2ft. down his throat. Great a perfect snake killed by the other. So I put on some special gloves and took it out of the other one mouth. It still had the mouse in its mouth when the other swallow it. It was limp with no movement at all anywhere. But I thought I would try inserting a ball tip dosing needle with a 6cc syringe with the plunger out so I could breathe air in to its epiglottis filling the lungs with air. I did this for about 30mins or so . The video was not started at first because I was more concerned with its life than doing a video. After working on it I grabbed a GoPro camera that we sell and took a bit of video and as you see the snake came back to life and is now doing fine. Nature and life is a beautiful thing. Thanks for watching. Tongs.com
