“I guess it’s because of the taste or smell of the rubber slippers, I’ve seen them a few times. Maybe he feels like they were his prey!” wrote one user. “Cinderella – The Serpentine Edition,” said another.
A third user wrote, “This is amazing…it’s possible the snake thinks it’s prey.” A fourth explained: “Looks like he’s building something of his own, maybe a fort he looks very happy with, dancing like that with his head in the air, practically prancing around, which is very difficult to do without prancing legs.” “Fast and furious,” wrote another.
The location where this video was shot is not yet known.
