Violence & Gore
- When the "Rabbit Lady" Rhonda Britton is interviewed, she is shown raising rats and mice, and explains they are mostly sold as food for pet snakes. Her rabbits are also being sold as food for bigger snakes. She offers to show a feeding, and the director/narrator declines at first, by referring to the earlier movie -- "I got into a lot of trouble showing you clubbing that rabbit". But the feeding is shown. It happens very quickly. We see a very large snake against the wall of a room. The rabbit is tossed down in front of it, and they lock eyes. When the rabbit tries to run away (the floor is slippery and its foot slips), the snake lunges out and around it. (The snake strike is very fast and startling. It takes about one quarter of a second from "poised" to "coiled around victim".)
- The viewer can hear the rabbit scream. (People are surprised that rabbits make any noise at all.)
- With the snake coiled around the rabbit, the film quickly cuts to a scene from "Dr. Doolittle". But then the film cuts back.
- There is a long duration close-up of the snake swallowing the rabbit. The viewer is looking into the snake's gaping mouth to watch the last of the rabbit's hindquarters moving down the snake's throat, ending when the snake manages to close its mouth shut.
- Among the credits is a notice "No animals were harmed in the making of this film, though some were well fed."
