JERK!: Dino-Baby Eating Snake Discovered

Paleontologists recently found the fossilized remains of a snake in a dinosaur's nest, about to chow down on some baby dino. Thankfully, God spited the snake and wiped that mother out in a landslide. THAT'S WHAT YOU GET, SATAN!

Scientists have found a 67 million-year-old fossil of a snake coiled around dinosaur eggs and a hatchling. This is the first evidence of snakes eating dinosaurs.


"It's a stunning, once-in-a-lifetime find," said paleontologist Paul Sereno of the University of Chicago, who was not involved in the study. "We've caught one of the rarest moments in the fossil record, which is prey and predator, together."

Haha, nice Paul -- I love taking credit for things I wasn't involved in. The moon landing? That was all me. Also, fire and stretchy pants.

Thanks to Spikey DaPikey, Spiff and Footclan, who have never eaten the fruit a snake told them to. Fruit-Roll-Ups, yes, plain fruit, no.
