Python Devours, Then Throws Up, an Antelope

August 26, 2016—A python regurgitates an antelope in the city of Gorakhpur, India. The reason the snake regurgitated? It was a defensive response, says herpetologist Kenney Krysko. The people nearby stressed the snake out, so it threw up its massive meal in order to lighten its load and better escape. The same behavior is seen in other snakes, as well as in birds and other animals.
