Punch the snake.

You lash out at the snake, pounding it with your off hand as you find that your other is being held tightly to your body. The snake hisses in discomfort and sinks his fangs into your neck. Although you know these types of snakes don't tend to be venomous, it sure does hurt, and the snake is using the bite for added leverage as it coils around you. Your limited knowledge of herpatology also tells you that these snakes can squeeze the breath out of you, but this one seems especially strong; you can feel your bones cracking, twisting, penetrating your organs. Luckily, this only lasts a few moments. Soon, the lack of air gives you a final moment of euphoria to enjoy as the world goes dark.

Dying is beautiful, isn't it?
