A very gigantic snake that was suspected to have eaten a calf, was killed by some locals.
The locals were amazed to find out that the snake had not eaten their livestock, but was rather heavily pregnant. Its swollen stomach contained dozens of eggs.
According to Daily Mail UK, the incident happened in Nigeria where local media said the snake had been killed over accusations it had been feasting on farmers’ livestock.
However, images show, the snake was not overweight because of its last meal, it was actually pregnant.
There have been some reports of African rock pythons, which is the continent’s biggest snake and one of the world’s largest, growing up to a massive 6m in length.
The African rock python feeds on a variety of large rodents, monkeys, warthog, antelopes, fruit bats, monitor lizards and even crocodiles in forest areas, and on rats, poultry, dogs and goats in suburban areas. Occasionally, it may eat the cubs of big cats such as leopards, lions, and cheetahs and puppies of big dogs such as hyenas and cape-hunting dogs
