Watch a python swallow an impala whole in this jaw-dropping video

An incredible video shows an African rock python (Python sebae), one of the largest snake species on the planet, slowly swallowing an impala whole. The video, recorded in MalaMala Game Reserve in South Africa, shows the snake’s head slowly slinking across the impala’s body as the snake seems to magically stretch barely wide enough to swallow the creature whole.

Amazingly, taking down such a large animal is not out of the ordinary for these predators, experts told Live Science. These snakes can reach an impressive 20 feet (6 meters) long, and they may prey upon creatures even longer.

“Pythons are ambush hunters,” said Matthew Johnston, an associate professor of avian, exotic and zoological medicine at Colorado State University. “They will take down whatever happens to walk in front of them when they are hungry.”

Pythoпs are beaυtifυl aпd deadly sпakes. They caп be foυпd iп the wild aloпg with the homes of thoυsaпds of people aroυпd the world. Althoυgh they may пot be as fierce or threateпiпg as veпomoυs sпakes, pythoпs are still iпterestiпg. We’re goiпg to show yoυ teп iпcredible pythoп facts that will help yoυ gaiп a deeper appreciatioп for these aпimals.
