Who would kill 2 snakes?
I donít think anyone killed $100 worth of snakes just to play this prank. Those adult balls are ordered in lots of 100 to 500 from Africa and many die in transit. I think some importer or someone working with an importer grabbed the 2 largest dead balls and went out to the parking lot and made these pics. I am sure these pics are staged, the details of the staging are nothing more then speculation.

I am not sure what happened right bgefore the pictures were taken- but I must say that I do hope that it was staged with previously deceased snakes. OMG, I just thought, what if they took dead snakes, then turned the car on?
Oh I curse my immagination sometimes! Sorry.

Its a RSX not an NSX (it still gonna be hot like anyother car though) and only a 2.0L 4cylinder not a v8. But it does look staged, not sure why anybody would go through the time of spreading snake guts all over their motor just to snap off a few pics to show to their internet friends... seems extremely pointless

Poor snakes.

I don't think it's staged. Who in their right (or wrong) mind would stage something like this. It kills animals, can possibly damage engine components, and would be a big and discusting cleanup job.

I tought the rsx model had the headlights right at the edge of the hood. Meaning that you would see the headlight frame on the hood and on the fram of the car itself.

That is what I don't understand.

Some of you honestly think that this person (whoever it is, importer with dead snakes, or not) is going to A. Either cut this snake up himself and cover the entire engine of the car with blood and guts, or you think B. They put an already dead snake on the engine and started it and covered the engine and inside of the car with guts and blood and snake parts?

Doesn't sound feesable (sp) to me for a couple stupid internet photos.

That is so disturbing! I mean, it is so upsetting. I couldn't look at it after a first quick glance. It sicked me out how he said it popped! That is so sad. I am so disappointed.

3 ft. manifold on an acura????? not a hope in he**. I drive an impala with a 454 bigblock and it's only 22 inches across. that manifold is gererously 18 inches MAXIMIM.

Secondly, the poster states he recieved the story via E-mail (via friend of a friend, etc), so details were likely corrupted long before he recieved it. It was likely the car owner's pet snake in his driveway, not 40 miles down the interstate. I think the story is more filled with fiction than the photos.

My question is this, why the hell would you have posted this picture on the forum, other than to sicken people? I can understand a pic of a snake that has been eaten by a mouse or rat to teach us not to feed live, but what does this prove? Not to let your BP go out for a stroll? Or not to drive your car? Or at least, to check under the hood every time you attempt to start your car JUST IN CASE there is a BP on it? I think this picture was posted in poor taste.

Yes of course! People would do that, for the same reason this yahoo crawled inside of a dead snake. =)

That photo you use as an example of yes someone would is totally different. In that situation there was no car engine covered in blood and guts which would take hours of detailing and cleaning. Why would someone almost ruin the engine filth wise for those photos? That would be stupid.

That photo is also to make people fear "man eating" snakes. No one is going be scared of ball pythons on their engines from now on, it doesn't serve the same purpose as the above doctored photo.
