Cobra Dead After Swallowing A Python

Locals in Davao del Sur, Philippines, on Wednesday, were shocked after seeing a dead cobra who tried to swallow a python.

Reports have it that the 11-feet-long cobra and the phyton were fighting in a rice field. An eyewitness claimed the cobra tried to attack him but to no avail as it had already swallowed the python, which prevented him to move freely.

Photos showed that almost half of the body of the eight-foot python was found inside the cobra with only its tail hanging from its jaws. The eyewitness alerted residents living nearby the area.

The villagers responded quickly and killed the cobra using a golf club. Using a machete, they cut open the poisonous reptile and found the phyton inside its stomach.

The residents revealed to a local media that they decided to kill off the cobra since a lot of their neighbors died from cobra bites in the past few years. “There are lots of snakes in our area, but this is the first time we saw a cobra eat a python. We’ve had people die from cobra bites before so my neighbors killed the snake as soon as he saw it,” one local claimed.

They, then, reported the incident to the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, which advised the locals to keep watch of snakes while working in the rice fields.
