Video: Watch a python get dissected

Kerri’s guest today was Joy Reidenberg, a comparable anatomist. A caller asked her whether dissecting a giant squid reminded her of “Alien.” Reidenberg said no, but that another animal — the python — did remind her of the Ridley Scott sci-fi classic. The snake, like Sigourney Weaver’s most famous nemesis, has two sets of teeth.
