A female Burmese python, about 16 feet (5 meters) long, recently swallowed a certain 76-pound (35-kilogram) female near Eʋerglades National Park in Florida.
Hunter and prey both died as a result of the ordeal — the snake was shot in the head with a shotgun, as is customary, according to CNN — but the graphic photographs that followed told the story.

In fact, I recently published an essay on how their hearts and other organs grow to help them digest their feasts of the week before. (They have fatty acids in their flow, to give you a simple explanation.)
Reptiles 𝓀𝒾𝓁𝓁 and choke on food. They will toss a meal into perspective, grate it with their back-healing jaws, and smell it with their bare hands, choking it to death.
The snakes then open their hinged jaws to fully swallow their food.
