EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

When an East Texas family found a king snake caught in the netting material guarding tomato plants, they decided to rescue it, but they had no idea that they were about to see something both disgusting and amazing.

What Nathan and Allyson Shelton Gann captured on video is not easy to explain, or to forget.

It looks like the snake vomits another snake of roughly the same size.

The girls that took the video could not believe it either.

"Well Dottie, you are free to go catch another snake," the woman in the video says after the snake vomits up another.

Daryl Sprout, a herpetologist from Dallas, says that the approach of the people taking the video probably caused the snake to regurgitate its meal. He says a fresh meal that size would slow the snake down, too much for escape from people whose footsteps it could feel approaching through the ground.
