ND Science Dep't, 1906

Sep 06, 2013

A boa constrictor was presented to the department...

by Mr. George Senrich of South Bend, who got it from a car of bananas shipped from South America. The reptile is two feet long; it is about two years of age, and feeds upon creatures, such as mice and frogs, which it kills by crushing. "Dock" McCarty captured a live mouse Thursday and planned on giving the newcomer a square meal, and thereby live up to Notre Dame's reputation for hospitality. The mouse, however, died, evidently from fright, before the snake had an opportunity to strike it.
