That anaconda DID want some – of Nicki Minaj's backup dancer…

One of Nicki's dancers was bitten by a snake during the rapper's "Anaconda" rehearsal for the MTV VMAs on Friday, MTV News reported.

The snake, whose bite is non-venomous, has been used in the entertainment industry for 15 years and hadn't had any prior biting incidents, according to the site.

Nicki's performance will include a different snake, most likely another boa constrictor or a python, the website reported.

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards will air Sunday at 9/8c.
