Disease that make Snakes under Booze Effect

A disease that makes pythons tie them into tangles should without a doubt be known as mad snake disease. The mysterious disease has given researchers many sleepless nights, making them wonder what makes these pythons to behave in such a strange behavior.

Tangling was not the only trait of the disease, as it has also been revealed that the disease also makes it look that snakes are under the effect of booze. It is now that a group of researchers from the University of California has found that the disease is none other than Inclusion Body Disease (IBD).

The disease is said to quite prevalent among pythons and boa constrictors. Some of the common symptoms of the disease are strange behavior being put up by pythons, and looking upwards for long time.

"Some of the symptoms are pretty bizarre - this stargazing behavior, looking like they're drunk, they tie themselves in a knot and they can't get out of it”, said lead researcher Professor Michael Buchmeier

Buchmeier explained about the disease that Inclusion Body Disease got its name from inclusions, which means that the disease is present in roots of affected animals. The study, which has been published in the online journal of the American Society for Microbiology, seems to have made a breakthrough revelation.
