Python Is Gouged Through Its Throat By D.E.A.D Animal’s Horns As It Tries To Eat It

As it started eating on the d.e.a.d carcass, a gigantic python got itself stuck on an antelope’s horn, much like a fish on a hook. On Tuesday, a video of the event was shared on YouTube from inside South Africa’s Kruger Park. While wrapped around the dukier, a tiny type of antelope native to Sub-Saharan Africa, the worried python tries to release itself from the horns of the beast.


According to Australia’s 9news, the serpent ultimately managed to extricate itself from the antelope’s hold after a long fight. Some viewers of the YouTube video reprimanded the tourists who videotaped the experience, claiming that they were to blame for the snake’s impaling by frightening it and pushing it to flee swiftly. HellaFlush070 wrote, “Tourists got the snake to withdraw and (sic) puncture himself like that.”

African rock Pythons are non-ᴠᴇɴᴏᴍᴏᴜs and k.i.l.l their food via constriction. They may grow up to 12 feet long. The snake wraps around its prey after confining it, strengthening its grasp every time the ᴠɪᴄᴛɪᴍ exhales. According to experts, cardiac arrest, rather than asphyxiation or crushing, is the most common cause of d.e.a.t.h.
