Getting a hold on a constrictor's tail when you're being wrapped is much easier said than done. Also, they don't wrap in a perfect roll, they always have coils over coils, which makes unwrapping and pulling them off very difficult - plus, they are constantly tensing muscles and are exceptionally strong, and often try to rewrap as you're going. Not to mention, their teeth being embedded in your flesh is quite painful and they move/tense every time they get pulled on causing more pain. It is most certainly not a pleasant situation. This is generally why they suggest the buddy system when working with large pythons and boas, so if one gets wrapped, the other can help remove the snake - or at the very least, run for help.
