Villagers Thought This Giant Python Ate A Calf But Discovered This When They Cut it Open!


Villagers Thought That This Huge Snake Swallowed A Livestock. When They Opened It, They Found Dozens Of Eggs.

Giant snakes are really scary, but they are amazing in many ways. You may wonder how these creatures swallow animals that are bigger than themselves. Anyway, we always want to know more about the big snakes. But there is this one snake in one village in Nigeria wherein they thought that the snake swallowed a human being. But when they cut the snake open they saw something different.

The largest living snakes in the world, measured either by length or by weight, are various members of the Boidae and Pythonidae families. They include anacondas, pythons, and boa constrictors, which are all non-venomous constrictors. 

It is important to be aware that there is considerable variation in the maximum reported size of these species, and most measurements are not truly verifiable, so the sizes listed should not be considered definitive.



Locals who killed a huge snake after suspecting it of having eaten a calf because of its swollen stomach discovered it was pregnant with dozens of eggs. The incident happened in Nigeria where local media said that the snake had been killed over accusations that it had been feasting on farmers’ livestock. 





However as these images show, the snake was not overweight because of its last meal, it was actually pregnant. After being cut open, dozens of eggs were found and removed by locals who regard them as a rare delicacy.






Online commentators seem to have little sympathy with the snake, with most pointing out that it was a good thing that around a hundred baby snakes would no longer be born. Although it was not clear what sort of snake it was, many snakes can produce up to 100 eggs at a time. 





It is safe to say that it is a Python since there are no Anacondas in Africa. Judging by the size of the snake, which appears to be almost a foot wide and several meters long, it looks like an African rock python. African rock pythons can grow from 3 meters to over 4.8 meters long. Some sightings claimed that it can grow up to 6 meters long.





Snakes are one of the most ferocious animals on the planet. One characteristic that makes them so terrifying is their ability to dislocate their jaw and swallow animals whole. Whether or not you have a phobia of snakes it is comforting to know that not all of them are inherently bad. In fact, some of them are quite cute and many people keep them as pets. However, it is always important to take precautions when it comes to non-domesticated animals.





And although not all snakes are like that, it’s safe to assume that most snakes in the wild are best left alone. Or possibly even killed when they pose threat to people or a person’s home. Or in this case, a farm.
