The python crawling in the Lake Eland game reserve in South Africa probably never guessed that it would die after what seemed to it as a big meal. The python almost four meters in length had swallowed a 30 lb porcupine. The quills of the porcupine had pierced the inside of the python. The python had also fallen off a rocky ledge, which caused the quills to penetrate more and caused the death of the reptile.

Known for suffocating its prey to death while winding around it, the python then swallows its prey completely. Sometimes they get too greedy or blind in trying to swallow their meal. This one was found lying on the road, unusually swelled up and unable to move in a village in Malaysia. Later the 18-foot long reptile had to throw out the dead pregnant sheep that it tried to consume.
Python eating python
This is the best example of cannibalism in the animal kingdom perhaps. A python was trying to swallow a rat and another on looking hungry python approached it for food. Eventually the hungry python decided to consume the first python itself and it did it successfully.
