Orit Fox and the late boa constrictor

An Israeli glamour model is recovering after a boa constrictor bit her chest and died of silicon poisoning as a result.

Orit Fox needed a tetanus injection after the creature attacked her while she was filming a scene for a Spanish television programme. Ms Fox, who once told an Israeli interviewer that she was “obsessed” with her breasts, was trying to lick the snake at the time.

Ms Fox, famous in Israel for having several breast enlargement operations, survived after an assistant heard her screaming and pulled the snake away.

Medical staff were unable to revive the snake.
