Burp!

But I thought it would get moved for not being Cryptozoology and Mythical Beasts.

I know I read an article in Fortean times magazine where a guy had gone out in India or someplace to check on his generator and when he failed to return his buddies went looking for him and found a huge Reticulated Python had killed him. When they found him the snake had swallowed his head and was working its way over his shoulders (there was a picture of it like that with the article). know I still have the issue someplace as I'm a hopless pack rat, just have to look for it.

Found this via Google.

Could be true, I guess.

WARNING. following images show a man supposedly eaten by snake. some may find it offensive.

Edit: Also found this on another website where they discredit the story somewhat, although they still lack proof.

i watched a tv program on National Geographics bout constrictors and pythons. And it was saying in one story that a pythons was stalking and trying to eat a full grown man.

There are no hippos in Brasil, where this video was made.

They say that it was a young 6m sucuri (anaconda) that was found on a river in the state of São Paulo, and it regurgitated the animal (probably a capivara) because it was to heavy to move on land.

In this page you can see photos of an anaconda eating a capivara.

They also say that the digestion takes about 65 days.

That is actually a pig. Note the cloven hooves; a capybara has only three toes (as someone already inadvertantly pointed out), which actually look more duck-like than hoof-like. Also, the build of the body is all wrong for a capybara.

As for the animal in the video, it's most likely a tapir of some sort, maybe a Brazillian tapir. The feet of the tapir match up well with the feet shown in the video, as does the general build and size. Hippos, as ArMaP already pointed out, don't live in Brazil. Besides, hippos have four toes, as has already been said. The animal in the video has three. Also make note of the proboscis of the carcass at the end of the clip--a very tapir trait.

Picture number 8 is a bit dodgy
dunno how that one got in the collection!

The man could porbably be heard screaming by his wife, because when my friend feeds his snake live mice, they scream for a while before they are squeezed to death, so I expect the man would of done the same.

Great story tho and great pics

That's disgusting! Well it looks like either a baby hippo or maybe a dwarf hippo. Still, quite the "Achievement". Maybe it spit it out because it was under stress seeing that the guy keeps poking it?


No! Hippoes are notoriously hard to digest! Even for the most acid based snake!!!

Obviously this snake hasn't been working very long at his job.....sssssend him back to sssschool!

Seen that ont his site before, its quite amusing.

FYI, that isn't being played in reverse.
The Snake is actually regurgitating the Hippo, i know this for 2 reasons.
1)Look at the man walking behind, his motion is to fluid to be backwards.
2)Its a natural response to Danger.
If the Snake perceives a threat before digestion has begun to take any real hold, it can quickly regurgitate so it can make a get away. In this case, I should expect people have been touching it, pointing at it and/or moving very close to it.


This was a wild python that snuck into a zoo and ate a baby hippo.

actually, it is in reverse.

Snakes cannot regurgitate food after they've swallowed it. They can vomit, but that's only until after they've partially digested it.

This is because they have recurved teeth, and they curve like fish hooks toward the stomach to pull food into the gullet and also to hold onto prey and not let them get away.

Also, they won't regurgitate when eating. Snakes go into a trance-like state when eating (like how turtles do when laying eggs) and can be poked and prodded all you want, and they won't do anything.

Plus, I was watching a Steve Irwin (rip) special and they had to remove surgical staples from a pythons face, and to prevent her from biting, they fed it a goat. If they could gather 4 people around it and painfully pull staples out of a python's head and it didn't regurgitate, then why would it regurgitate after people gathering around it and poking it with a stick?

And it's not a natural response to regurgitate. Snakes never know when they'll get food again, so why would they waste the meal?

The few people that get eating by large pythons are not being hunted by the snake the y just happen to walk into it at the wrong place at the wrong time. They are quite strong and if your by yourself and are not strong enough to uncoil them then your snake food.

African Rock Pythons. Giant bad boys. Those teeth will lacerate through elephant hide, and it HURTS!!!!


That one had eaten a gazelle, and then tried to crawl under an electric fence and ZAP!

Sucks to be him...

its doesnt appear to be a hippo, i agree with Jedi_Master in saying that its probably a capybara.

Also, check out the snakes jaw after its all stretched out, thats gotta sting!!
