When farmers in Nigeria found their calves continually going
missing, thanks to a local menace, they suspected it was a python. Those
suspicions rose even further when a bulging python appeared, looking as if it
had livestock stored beneath the surface. It was an African Rock python. They were able to kill the
suspected menace and when they cut the stomach out, what they found wasn’t what
they expected.The python’s tummy was filled with dozens of eggs, all waiting to
be born and release their own brand of terror on the livestock.
Oddly enough, these farmers weren’t just elated, they were also
rich with glee. Python eggs are considered a delicacy in some parts of the
world and this loot was the equivalent of striking the jackpot.
