The cringe-worthy video footage below has recently come to light online. It shows the horrifying moment that a Brazilian snake somehow managed to swallow a porcupine and was consequently seen writhing around on the ground in the throes of complete agony.

The unfortunate creature had quills protruding from its body on every side.

It's unclear where the clip was filmed, except that it was somewhere in Brazil. However, since it was posted to the online video-sharing website called LiveLeak last week, it's acquired thousands of views.

The video is frightful enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand at attention! 

Take a look at the disturbing video below:

OMG! This is terrible! It looks like the snake may have gotten the 'point' when it tried to eat the porcupine!

Hopefully, the quills were removed and the snake lived to hunt another day!

If so, it would seem a safe bet that this snake will NEVER hunt another porcupine ever again!

What do you think, does it look like the snake ate the porcupine or did it just attempt to eat one?
