A python shown in a video dies after trying to swallow a fully grown antelope. The antelope became the-20ft snake’s last meal, as it could be seen rolling with its protruding tummy afterward. The incident happened in Baliavad village near Gir wildlife sanctuary, in the Indian state of Gujarat.

The snake’s death is believed to have occurred due to the large size of the antelope compared to the capacity of the snake’s tummy.

The scene attracted a crowd of villagers.

One of villagers, Sunil Kumar, 28, describe the incident as

“one of the most spectacular moments I have ever witnessed as the python was unbelievably huge.”
