Python Eats Porcupine Whole, Then The Unexpected Happens…

Researchers found its body, and here prepare to dissect it.

The snake was later found dead and researchers were excited to solve the mystery of what, exactly, was its last meal.


It was found dead beneath a rocky ledge. Chances are, it fell off the ledge and was internally damaged by its former meal. They were eager to discover what kind of prize lay within it. Although it may appear that the snake bit off more than it could chew (so to speak), the snake’s body can accommodate this kind of mass without pain.

And eating an animal this large would have lasted the snake for months afterwards. Too bad its post-dinner nap was forever.
