I think I would have to go with a large sledgehammer and hit it repeatedly until it let go - then hit it a bit more for being a bad snake..... after that I dont think it will try those kind of funky tricks again

Sorry had to joke cos its sooooo unwise to get in that predicament in the first place. Mistakes happen and I have had to go in the "big snakes" vivs when I have been home alone, in an emergency. But I dont do it lightly and if I thought the snake was in a bad mood Id leave it alone till the OH got home.

If I did make this serious mistake, then I would certainly try to unwind from the tail, but really the first thing I would try to do is call the OH for help or assistance (he only works 15 miles/10 mins away).

Most supermarkets do malt vinegar in a pump spray. That would be a good first resort as it is easy to operate with one hand and can direct a spray into the snakes mouth.
