Snakes are known to eat anything especially pythons, they are known to eat large animals such as deer,pig etc. However these 9 snakes failed miserably on choosing their last meal, which results into death. Below are photos and details about their last meal.
1. Python eats a pregnant sheep :
This 18 foot or 5.5 meter long Python eats a pregnant lamb for dinner and was not able to slither around due to it.
In 2006, firefighters in the Malaysian village of Kampung Jabor have been called to get rid of the bloated snake from a roadway. The snake swallowed a pregnant sheep and was too full to slither away and digest its meal. When the python was being captured it regurgitated the dead pregnant sheep in a chance to escape.
2. Python found dead after swallowing an adult porcupine
A large python was discovered lying dead next to a cycle track after swallowing a 13.8kg porcupine, the spines of which punctured the inside of the snake.
The python, just about 4 meters in length, died after falling from a rocky ledge within the Lake Eland Game Reserve in South Africa. The fall is believed to have forced the quills to puncture the snake’s digestive tract (although the precise cause of its demise is unknown).
After the snake was reported to gamekeepers, they carried out an autopsy on the animal to cast off the porcupine from its innards and found the insides of the snake had been pierced by dozens of the animal’s sharps quills.
3. Python bursts after eating gator
Unfortunately for a 4 meter long Burmese python in Florida’s Everglades National Park, consuming the enemy appears to have led to the voracious reptile to bust a gut—literally.
Wildlife researchers with the South Florida Natural Resources Center discovered the lifeless, headless python in October 2005 after it apparently tried to digest a 6-foot-long American alligator. The mostly intact lifeless gator was discovered sticking out of a hole in the midsection of the python, and wads of gator skin had been discovered in the snake’s gastrointestinal tract.
The gruesome discovery suggests that the python’s feisty last meal may have been merely too much for it to deal with.
4. Python tries to steal a rat from a bigger Python gets eatin instead.
A smaller Burmese Python already catch a rat for lunch, however a bigger Burmese Python went on to steal the meal, then later decided to eat the Python instead.
5. Python eats adult deer for his final meal
On October 27, 2011 a photo was provided by the South Florida Water Management District as workers are shown holding a nearly 16 foot long Burmese Python that was captured and killed in Everglades National Park, Florida. The picture below shows the Burmese Python ate a 76lb adult female deer.
6. Centipede bites its way out of snake after being eaten alive
In 2013, a young viper was discovered dead with a centipede’s head protruding out of the snake’s body. Ljiljana Tomovic, a Serbian herpetologist, was tagging snakes in Macedonia when she made the attention-catching discovery. While shorter in size, the 4.8 gram mass of the prey, Centipede, was in fact better than the 4.2 gram female nose-horned viper.
7. Snake swallows electric blanket
Surgical procedure was required to save the 12-foot snake when it made a meal of a queen-size electric blanket, complete with electrical cord and control box, as seen in this picture. The blanket’s wiring extended through about 8 ft of the the 60-pound (27-kilogram) reptile’s digestive tract.
8. Snake dies after failing to digest pig
Julatten resident Neil McDougall was in search of mushrooms on his property when he discovered a lifeless 4.5m python. It had a very distended belly indicating it had eaten something relatively large. An expert told Mr. McDougall the snake most likely died from a perforated gut due possibly to a wallaby or a small pig’s foot cutting it.
