A 14-foot snake found behind a woman’s house in Thailand is seen regurgitating a huge lizard it swallowed moments before being recovered by rescuers.
The snake is believed to be a Burmese python, and was found by homeowner Uraiwan Seksuk, 44, in Mueang Samut Songkhram, Central Thailand.
Ms Seksuk was busy hanging laundry when she noticed the snake slithering underneath a broken motor in her backyard.
She immediately called rescuers to help catch the reptile, which weighs approximately 44 pounds.
Video shows officers Sawang Benchait and Samut Songkhram taking a hammer to the concrete in the woman’s backyard, breaking away piece by piece to reveal the large snake hiding underneath.
They eventually pound away at enough of the concrete to be able to pull the python out.
After having its meal disturbed, the snake becomes aggressive and proves difficult to catch with the tools the rescuers have on hand.

The officers are seen grabbing the long snake by its tail and lifting it as its body bulges into the boot of one of their vehicles.
Before releasing it back into the wild, however, rescuers were shocked to see the python slowly regurgitating what turned out to be a large Asia water monitor, or varanus salvator.

The python had apparently suffocated and swallowed the lizard, which weighed 33 pounds and was 3-feet in length.
Rescuers said the python likely regurgitated the lizard due to the stress of being captured.
The homeowner said she had seen snakes in her backyard before, but none that were big enough to swallow an entire monitor lizard.
