WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES: ENORMOUS PYTHON SWALLOWS EVEN BIGGER PYTHON, BUT CAN'T HANDLE IT
News of the images was first reported by Live Science.
The olive python, which can reach up to 13 feet in length, is known to eat birds, mammals and other reptiles, including fruit bats and ducks, according to Pilabra Pythons, which handles commercial sales of snakes in Australia. It's also been known to eat larger reptiles, such as the aforementioned crocodile, though it does not always end well for the python.
The eating habits of pythons are well-known. They've been known to eat all kinds of prey, including each other. In May, a python, estimated to be between 11.5 and 13 feet in length, was found trying to eat an even larger python, but could not handle the meal and subsequently regurgitated it.
In 2017, it was reported that a 23-foot python in Indonesia swallowed a 25-year-old man whole. A Burmese python living in Florida's Everglades attempted to eat an alligator. However, it was found dead, burst open with the dead gator inside, National Geographic reported in 2006.
