The snake is believed to be an anaconda, the publication says in its report. 

Minaj was performing "Anaconda" during the incident. 

While anacondas are not venomous, the site says they "often transmit bacteria that can lead to serious infections." As a result, the dancer was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

The VMAs are set to air tomorrow (August 24) from Inglewood, California.
