It is safe to say that this python bit off a little more than he could swallow.
Bystanders at South Africa’s Kruger Park caught a rare sight on film as a python was in the process swallowing an antelope.
The snake was in the process of swallowing its prey head first when the antelope’s horns suddenly pierced through the snake from the inside out.
It didn’t take long after that for the snake to decide he had made a bad choice. Watch the video below to see the remarkable incident for yourself!
These large snakes are known for their large appetite. By detaching their jawbones the snakes can eat animals that are multiple times their size.
While snakes often die from trying to swallow animals to big for their size, this snake was able to escape with its life.
