African Rock Python

Posted Wednesday, May 14, 2008, at 10:17 AM

I was browsing the internet the other day and found an interesting story. I do not know how old the story is, but must be somewhat recent as I've seen it pop up on a couple of news sites lately.

The story is about a farmer who noticed some of his sheep were missing. He put up an electric fence and a few days later found a snake. It seems the snake was feasting on the sheep and had caught himself in the electric fence. After taking some amazing pictures, the farmer decided to cut the snake open and found a full grown Impala Ewe inside.

Below is a link to a page that gives a bit more info as well as pictures of this particular scene. The pictures are a bit graphic as it shows the full snake caught in the fence as well as a closeup of his mouth. The third picture is the most graphic and is a picture of the snake cut open to reveal the ewe inside.

I received that e-mail, and W O W !

Was that an 'ewe,' or an 'you,' inside? Yuk, Yuk, joke there? That snake was large enough to kill children, easily (not a joke).

View it folks.
