Ah, the magical circle of life! The benevolent and loving universe watches over all of us ... unless you run into something that's hungry and larger than you are, that is.
Some of these constrictors reach 30+ feet , so yeah, people are chow, too. Reminds me of that photo from the 1950's taken by a bush pilot in Africa of a monster snake (conservatively) estimated to be over 50 ' long... reportedly it lunged at the plane.
Anyway, yup... monsters exist and thanks for the lovely corpse from the gutted snake video.. .I needed impetus to stick to a diet.
