The snake’s distended flesh peels back to reveal the partially-digested corpse of a very large porcupine. The brown objects appear to be vertebrae. Yet, even at this stage, you really can’t tell what that thing is… To me it still looks like a lump of flesh with thick fur.

It’s a brave snake that will eat a fully-grown porcupine that’s as big as a dog. The gamble obviously did not pay off for the snake, though.
