A python is usually incredibly long, and they are quite heavy compared to other snakes. Likewise, they can kill prey of various sizes by constricting them. Once they've got their prey through their coils, they start to tighten the grip. Basically, their prey dies because of cardiac arrest or something similar to it.
But even a dead prey can still hurt its predator. Read on!
Specifically, the horn of a dead antelope managed to stab the python.
This occurred on Tuesday, August 9, and many people have already seen what transpired.
The python tried to constrict the antelope further, but the pain from the stabbing was unbearable.
The duiker can be found in Sub-Saharan Africa.
At first, the python was seemingly successful in swallowing the duiker, but then the horn hit the snake.
If you look closely, a horn is right there near the python's mouth. Ouch!
It wasn't an easy process because the python had already surrounded the antelope in coils.
These scary snakes can be as long as 12 feet. Some pythons even manage to be longer than this.
When the python saw the tourist, it must have felt anxious and attempted to escape immediately.
What do you think? Should the tourist be blamed for what happened to the snake? Share your thoughts below!
