A giant anaconda regurgitating an entire animal in the Brazilian jungle has become a surprise online hit – despite its gruesome content.
Almost 66,000 people have watched the video on YouTube in just two days.
The footage shows the anaconda vomiting an animal that is completely undigested.
The animal can be seen slowly emerging as the anaconda writhes in the water.

Although when the video was posted online, it suggested the hapless creature was a cow, commenters have debated whether the it is in fact a capybara.
The giant rodent, which is related to a guinea pig and weighs up to 66 kg (145 lbs), is native to South America and the preferred prey of the anaconda.
These kitties are surely risking one of their nine lives in a hilarious skydving stunt to promote Swedish insurance firm Folksam.
Despite its convincing appearance, it has emerged that the commercial was produced using green screen technology.
The advert is for customer owned Swedish insurance company Folksam in honor of one of its customers, Eva Leijonmark, who has her beloved cat covered by the firm.
Folksam had asked its customers for advertising ideas, but probably didn’t bargain on Eva’s wacky concept.
The video shows the cats appearing to freefall with squinted eyes and the wind rushing through their fur.
The group then join up in formation linking paws in an adorable attempt to spell out the word Eva across the sky.
Set to R Kelly’s 1996 hit I Believe I Can Fly, the ad then shows the moggies parachutes opening as they begin the slow descent back down to earth.

Produced by advertising agency Akestam.holst, the 40 second video has gone viral with almost 500,000 hits on YouTube.
While most viewers appear to see the funny side of the clip, some seem to be fooled into thinking that the cats involved were actually thrown from a plane.
The company has said that it followed animal welfare laws to ensure that the animals were unhurt in during the filming.
Folksam is one of Sweden’s oldest insurance firms and the advert is, of course, designed to promote its pet insurance policies.
Enrique Iglesias, who sent out a teaser for the music video to accompany his new single Finally Found You two weeks ago, has now provided the music video in its entirety.
Enrique Iglesias, 37, said no to an American Idol hosting job because he wanted to concentrate on his music career.
Fans will be happy to see that the singer’s 3 minute and 58 second video doesn’t disappoint.
In one sexy scene, Enrique Iglesias is standing shirtless over a bed where he’s just made love to the woman of his dreams. Then he pulls on his T-shirt as he watches her sleeping.
Other parts of the video has Enrique Iglesias showing his stuff in a tight grey T-shirt and flashing back to when he was an adolescent boy.
The clip also features him jetting down a nighttime freeway in a sports car and then standing in a crowded disco while staring at a mysterious blonde dressed all in black. She’s watching him over her shoulder watching her and next thing you know they’re making out against a wall.
Enrique Iglesias Finally Found You videoclip gets 5 million hits on YouTube after one week
Flash forward to the bedroom where Enrique Iglesias and the blonde heat up some more. The blonde gets up and all you see are her bare legs kicking the sheets away.
All this while his body-shaking single, Finally Found You, is playing.
The new single from the upcoming album Reloaded – Enrique Iglesias’ 10th studio effort – is definitely a hit with his fans as it gets almost 5 million hits on YouTube after less than one week.
An Australian woman, who was filmed swearing and abusing people on a train in Sydney, got what she deserved when she was thrown off onto her backside by other passengers.
The triumphant moment when her fellow commuters gang up on her and physically move her off the train was caught on camera and has become a hit on YouTube.
The video shows the young blonde spitting, swearing and hitting Sydney commuters until they finally snap and kick her off the train.
The 14-minute clip has already been watched by over 12,000 people.
The commuters initially try to ignore the ranting woman as she spits at them while shouting: “F*** off you c****, come on you little dogs step up!”
After ten minutes of constant abuse a middle-aged man standing nearby attempts to calm her down, but instead the woman starts battering him.

Shortly afterwards some of her victims lose their patience with the young woman and as the train pulls into a station, five of them take action.
They gather her bags and throw them onto the platform, swiftly followed by the woman herself.
After landing on the platform floor on her bottom the woman can be seen sheepishly staring at the vigilante travellers in disbelief who laugh and cheer in triumph.
Eventually as the video ends a security guard at the station escorts the woman away.
The video is becoming a YouTube hit with over 100 views every day.
Skydiver Felix Baumgartner smashed a number of records with his “edge of space” stunt – including for live streaming.
More than eight million people flocked to their devices to watch the 43-year-old break the speed of sound live on Google’s YouTube site.
It is the largest number of concurrent live streams in the website’s history, Google confirmed.
Austrian Felix Baumgartner also broke the record for the highest freefall.
He jumped from a capsule taken to 128,100ft (24 miles; 39 km) above New Mexico in the US by a giant helium balloon.
It took nine minutes for him to reach the ground.
The adventurer plummeted at an estimated 833.9 mph (1,343 km/h), hitting Mach 1.24.
“On the step, I felt that the whole world is watching,” Felix Baumgartner said after the jump.
“I said I wish they would see what I see. It was amazing.”
More than eight million people flocked to their devices to watch Felix Baumgartner break the speed of sound live on YouTube
The capsule from which the skydiver fell was equipped with cameras to provide a live internet feed to millions of people around the world.
A Google spokesperson confirmed that the number of viewers simultaneously watching the Red Bull Stratos stunt live on YouTube was the site’s highest.
“We congratulate Felix Baumgartner and the entire Red Bull Stratos team for their successful mission, and for creating a live stream with the most concurrent views ever on YouTube,” the company said on its blog.
In comparison, about 8.3 million people accessed the BBC’s sport website on the first day of this year’s Olympic Games.
Other technology used to record the event will have a more long-term application. Felix Baumgartner’s body was monitored during the jump using equipment from Equivital, a small UK company.
A system strapped to the skydiver’s chest wirelessly transmitted data about his heartbeat, respiration, skin temperature and other vital signs.
“It’s a major coup for Equivital, which, despite its small size – currently only 25 employees – provides the US Army with its human body monitoring system,” the company said.
The Red Bull Stratos scientists said the stunt had provided invaluable data for the development of high-performance, high-altitude parachute systems, and that the lessons learned would inform the development of new ideas for emergency evacuation from vehicles, such as spacecraft passing through the stratosphere.
“Part of this programme was to show high-altitude egress, passing through Mach and a successful re-entry back [to subsonic speed], because our belief scientifically is that’s going to benefit future private space programmes or high-altitude pilots, and Felix proved that today,” said Art Thompson, the team principal.
Four-year-old Delilah O’Donoghue’s earnest lecture on behavior to her two-year-old brother Gabriel could be about to make their family a fortune.
Saturday night their father Lee O’Donoghue told how he had initially posted a 65-second video clip of his children on YouTube thinking simply that friends and family could find it amusing.
Within days it had become an internet sensation, attracting more than half a million viewers as well as requests for interviews from media outlets here and in America.
Lee O’Donoghue and wife Alex, from Balsall Common, West Midlands, UK, described the interest in the video as “surreal”.
The 42-year-old said he began filming on his smartphone about two minutes into the little girl’s scolding.
“I watched from afar until I realized he must be really getting it from her,” he said.
“In classic Delilah style she decides to give it to him straight.”
Four-year-old Delilah O’Donoghue’s earnest lecture on behavior to her two-year-old brother Gabriel could be about to make their family a fortune
Alex O’Donoghue, 40, a teacher, said of their daughter: “Delilah’s very bossy – it’s how little girls are, I think.
“She has scolded Gabriel in the past. But it is as much about trying to teach him. They are good little buddies really.”
The clip shows Gabriel receiving the dressing down from his sister after he found himself in hot water with their father for spitting at another child in the playground.
Delilah O’Donoghue was quickly on hand with sisterly advice – some of which belies her young years.
“I’ll keep remembering you being about two and I’ll tell my friends that too,” she tells him.
“You’re nearly three, you should toughen up a bit.”
As the lecture continues, Gabriel hangs his head, swings his legs, fidgets with his hands and looks away.
Delilah tells him: “When Mum and Dad said you don’t do that, you don’t do that… and you don’t spit.”
Referring to the child with whom Gabriel had apparently had the playground spat, she adds: “That boy’s old enough. You’re only two.
“You’re not old enough for that boy to… do a fight.
“That boy’s older than you. Maybe he’s nine or ten…or maybe eight.” Delilah completes her reprimand with the words: “Think about it, Gabriel. Think about it.”
Lee O’Donoghue, a company director, said he posted the clip, titled You Need to Toughen Up A Bit, on YouTube last Tuesday.
He said: “I’m not the sort of father who follows my children around with a digital camcorder. I just spotted it and thought it was comedy gold.”
Lee O’Donoghue and his wife have now signed up with global video marketing company Viral Spiral, which represents hundreds of home-movie makers with the aim of maximizing profits from clips posted online.
The couple said they had not decided how to proceed with marketing linked to the video, saying their first concern is the impact any deal would have on their children.
The most viewed viral video of all time is of another pair of British siblings.
The clip, called Charlie Bit My Finger, shows a little boy having his finger bitten by his baby brother and has been viewed more than 480 million times since it was posted in 2007.
Their parents, Howard and Shelley Davies-Carr, from Buckinghamshire, also represented by Viral Spiral, have earned about £100,000 ($160,000) from advertising revenue and marketing deals. By today, 959,000 YouTube viewers had clicked on Delilah and Gabriel’s video.
Viral Spiral said: “This one is certainly endearing as Delilah shows so much maturity in what she says.
“What happens next depends on how far the family want to go with it.”
Animal lovers may want to look away now as a cat desperately tries to scratch an itch – using a spiky hedgehog.
But while you would think the hedgehog would prove a bit prickly, this blue British shorthair appears to think it makes the perfect scratching post.
The 56 second clip posted on YouTube earlier this week shows the domesticated cat tentatively approaching the curled up hedgehog before rolling its neck around the bristles.
And far from looking in pain, the cat’s delight at his new found scratcher is evident as he closes his eyes and rolls around on the hedgehog.
He then has a quick break from his strenuous scratching – going for a lick of milk from a nearby saucer.
But the British shorthair – voted the most popular breed of cat by the UK’s Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) since 2001 – soon returns to the hedgehog to continue his back scratch.
Throughout the video the cat’s owners’ can be heard giggling but the hedgehog remains perfectly still throughout until the briefest of movements right at the end of the video.
Many commentators debated whether the hedgehog was real or fake – with many claiming it was just instinctively hiding its head for protection.
Apple is ready to unveil the new iPhone 5 to the world in San Francisco today.
Meanwhile a video, which was purportedly filmed in an Apple factory, with the user taking great care to hide any serial numbers which might identify where the phone comes from, emerged to the public.
The video shows off the iPhone’s larger display, and the dock port which has caused much consternation for Apple fans who own accessories and cables which will not fit the new model.
The latest video has already had four million views on YouTube since it appeared on Asian website vgooo.com.

While these leaks should always be taken with a pinch of salt, it follows the design pattern for the iPhone 5 which has been rumored for months.
In the video, the new handset’s controversial connector can be clearly seen, along with the larger 4 inch screen.
The user went no further than the “connect to iTunes” messages on the screen, perhaps in fear of being tracked and discovered with an unauthorized model.
The video follows a leak last week which also claimed to show an iPhone 5 next to an iPhone 4S, which was posted by an anonymous user to YouTube.
Meanwhile, a Taiwanese pop star casually shared photographs of his brand new “iPhone 5” with his 13.5 million followers on Weibo, the Chinese micro-blogging equivalent of Twitter.
“Today I confirmed that the iPhone 5 will be longer and have an aluminum back like the iPad,” Jimmy Lin wrote, sharing that the new Apple phone will indeed have a smaller USB connector, much to many’s chagrin.
Though information has been known to leak about Apple’s secretive phone updates, many have dismissed Jimmy Lin’s new toy as just another knock off.
After Jimmy Lin shared several photographs of his new device, it was shared more than 80,000 times across the web, according to The Next Web.
“While it has a four-inch screen, it’s thinner, though it feels about the same in the hand,” he said.
“The headphone jack has also been moved to the bottom.”
An ungrateful son thanked his mom by filming her sleepwalking and posting it on the internet.
The hysterical video, uploaded on YouTube, shows the pajama-clad woman wandering and then waltzing around her kitchen, while her son follows her with a camera.
The son, who goes by the YouTube name of “stillsoundlyawake”, then asks “and what exactly are you doing mam”.
With eyes open and speaking intently, the mother explains that she was trying to open a “tomato cage” – a wire structure used to grow tomatoes.

“It’s a special code,” she says with a shimmy.
“I was doing a special thing. But the tomato cage wouldn’t open.”
The man, clearly amused, probes further: “And where exactly is this tomato cage?”
“Some place,” she says.
“I tried many things. But it wouldn’t open and I’m pissed off now.”
After a final, and extremely peculiar, dance move, the woman then leaves the kitchen, presumably headed back to bed.
But her son wouldn’t leave the humiliation there.
In a follow up video, which was also posted online, he shows his mother her sleepwalking antics.
Not quite believing what her subconscious self gets up to, she covers her mouth as she laughs. But her son is laughing harder.
YouTube app is missing from the next version of Apple’s iOS6 operating system.
Apple said the app had been removed because its license to produce the program had expired.
The Apple-made version of the YouTube app has been a staple on the iPhone’s iOS since the device was first launched in 2007.
Apple said Google was developing its own version of the app which should appear soon.
The fourth test, or beta, version of iOS6 was released by Apple on 6 August. The final public version is expected to be ready in September prior to the rumored launch of a new iPhone.
YouTube app is missing from the next version of Apple's iOS6 operating system
Soon after the software was released many tech news sites noticed it lacked the YouTube app, even though the Apple-made version of this program has been available for years.
Not all YouTube functions have disappeared from iOS6 beta, said Apple in its statement, as users can still play video by visiting YouTube with a web browser. They can also still upload films to YouTube from a phone or tablet.
Financial terms of the licensing deal that let Apple create the YouTube app have not been disclosed.
Apple would not be drawn on whether it would be replacing the YouTube app with another pre-installed video sharing service. It has already taken a similar step with Google maps, as iOS6 will use its own mapping app.
No date has been given for when Google’s version of the YouTube app will appear.
“This is all about Apple removing Google from its operating system completely,” said Stuart Miles, founder and head of tech news site Pocket-lint. He wondered if the end result of this strategy would be for Apple to drop Google as its default search engine on iOS.
“In a couple of years you will just ask Siri for results and you will not care where that comes from,” he said.
Gaining control of the YouTube app was good for Google, he said, because it let it update and change the program as needed. It would also likely mean that ads would appear on clips.
“There’s no reason why you won’t start having pre-roll adverts, which is going to mean a worse experience for users.”
YouTube unveiled yesterday a way for users to automatically blur human faces in videos they upload, a feature that would help protect the identities of political dissidents, parent company Google Inc said.
Once known more as a repository for fuzzy, home-made cat videos, YouTube has become a growing destination for slick, highly produced entertainment and serious news content.
Earlier this week, a study by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism said amateur “citizen journalism” footage from events such as the 2011 tsunami in Japan were some of the most-watched clips on YouTube.
In recent months YouTube has hosted dozens of videos from the rebellion in Syria, often uploaded by rebels seeking to publicize their struggle. But the videos have also revealed the identity of rebel fighters.
“Whether you want to share sensitive protest footage without exposing the faces of the activists involved, or share the winning point in your 8-year-old’s basketball game without broadcasting the children’s faces to the world, our face blurring technology is a first step towards providing visual anonymity for video on YouTube,” YouTube said in a blog post Wednesday.

The feature also allows for the original copy of the uploaded video to be deleted. Videos may also be kept private.
“YouTube is proud to be a destination where people worldwide come to share their stories, including activists,” YouTube said.
As a new feature they warn of it potentially missing some faces depending on the lighting, angle, video quality and obstructions.
“Before you publish, you will see a preview of what your video will look like with faces blurred. When you save the changes to your video, a new copy is created with the blurred faces. You will then be given the option to delete the original video,” the blog posted by Amanda Conway, policy associate at YouTube reads.
She uses an image of a demonstrator in Egypt as an example of a potential use for the feature.
According to YouTube, 60 hours of video are uploaded to their site every minute collecting more than 3 billion views a day.
The international human rights organization WITNESS reports that “no video-sharing site or hardware manufacturer currently offers users the option to blue faces or protect identity.”
Just over a month after the release of Diablo III, Kripparrian, a pro player, has managed to complete the game on its hardest setting.
Toronto-based Kripparrian posted a video on YouTube showing the hard fight against Diablo – the ultimate boss in the game.
To make the task harder, Kripparrian used the game’s “hard core” setting which left little room for error.
The achievement has been confirmed by the game’s developer, Blizzard.
The hugely popular Diablo III game casts players in the role of a hero who has to save the mythical world of Sanctuary from a demonic invasion.
Kripparrian made this job as hard as possible by playing the game’s Inferno mode which makes in-game enemies much tougher.
In addition, he used a “hard core” character. This meant that, if the character died once, the game would be over. He also got in-game help from another player called Krippi.
Just over a month after the release of Diablo III, Kripparrian, a pro player, has managed to complete the game on its hardest setting
The final fight against Diablo, the ultimate boss in the game, took about 25 minutes and Kripparrian was jubilant once it was done.
The achievement was completed prior to the application of the latest patch for the game which makes monsters easier to kill.
“With this patch, the bosses, the mobs, they become easier,” he said in the video of the kill.
“We didn’t want to beat it that way. We wanted to beat the game when it was hard, at the hardest point possible. So it was a race against time.”
One of Blizzard’s community managers confirmed the achievement soon after and offered congratulations via Twitter.
A bride thought belting out a cheesy love ballad as she walked down the aisle was a better way to describe her feelings.
In a video capturing what could be America’s most cringe-worthy nuptials, the doors of a small, nearly empty, church fling open to reveal the mystery bride standing alone in a glittery dress, clutching a large microphone.
Within a few seconds, the bride launches into song, as her groom stands awkwardly at the alter.
The bittersweet tune, which she presumably wrote herself, describes her fatherless childhood and how she’s finally found her “right man”.
“I’m all made up today with a veil upon my face but no father stands beside me to give this bride away,” she bellows.
Then she launches into the ballad’s cheesy chorus.
“Well, I’m standing in the chapel, wearing my white dress. I have waited for this moment with tears of happiness. Here I leave behind my past by taking a chance.”
The bride thought belting out a cheesy love ballad as she walked down the aisle was a better way to describe her feelings
After a dramatic pause, the woman then adds: “I finally found the right man.”
The footage was uploaded on YouTube by Petite Productions, a wedding videography company in Cincinnati, Ohio.
But the company gave few details about where the wedding took place or who the mystery wailer is.
The bride takes a few steps down the aisle in between each verse, while the groom waits uncomfortably at the alter.
Finally, he starts walking towards his wife-to-be and, when they meet, takes her hand.
She turns side on and gets emotional, singing again about her missing father.
“My emotions overload because there is no hand to hold,” she belts out before breathily speaking the words to her lover: “Here I go” and launching into the chorus again.
At one point, the bride, clearly considering herself an impressive songstress, gets so carried away with the vocal gymnastics she crouches down, to ensure she hits the right notes.
The couple then finish their walk down the aisle as the bride sings the last, touching line of her heart-felt ballad.
“One day our little girl will reach out her hand and she’ll know I’ve found the right man.”
