Python Tries To Bite Off More Than It Can Chew By Eating A Whole Porcupine

This giant snake died after swallowing a porcupine, weighing 30lb (it was also serious spikey, may we add) – which punctured its insides with its razor-sharp quills in a post-mortem last attempt at freedom. Yuck!

The four-metre-long African rock python was found beneath a rocky ledge at Lake Eland Game Reserve in South Africa. Its insides had been lacerated by dozens of quills from the porcupine while trying to digest its meal. The cheeky porcupine was making one last break for freedom! 3

Game keepers cut open the dead snake to remove the rest of the dead porcupine, we’re not really sure why. Just to look at it, we guess. But that’s what lead to this lovely photo: 4

As gross as this may be, it is weirdly interesting. We can’t help but wish Attenborough was talking over it, in his lovably soothing voice. 5
