Fearless toddler chews head off snake, unharmed

JERUSALEM (AFP) - A sleepy snake came to a rather untimely end after having its head half chewed off by a fearless toddler in an Arab town in northern Israel, the child's family told AFP on Friday. Thirteen-month-old Imad Aleeyan, who has six teeth, was found chewing on the head of the 30cm snake by his mother, who alerted the neighbourhood with her screams. 'I was making his milk and I looked over and saw he had a snake in his mouth,' said his mother, Ghadir Aleeyan who lives in the town of Shefa'Amr, 15 km east of the port city of Haifa. 'I started to scream. I couldn't believe my eyes,' she told AFP. 'I nearly died of fright.' Her screams brought the rest of the family - and the neighbourhood - running.
