A real bad day for this 12-foot rock python..
After the death of a 12-foot-long African Rock Python, park rangers opened its stomach. Inside they found a 30-pound porcupine.
Its needle-sharp quills seem to have punctured the snake's digestive tract and may have contributed to its death.
Pythons, which are some of the largest snakes in the world, kill their prey by constriction.
Some species are known to eat animals as large as antelope or deer. Their prey is swallowed whole and may take days or weeks to digest fully.
