A helpless mother could do nothing more than watch as an African rock python devoured her lamb whole. Wildlife guide Michelle Sole captured the incredible footage at the Marakele National Park in South Africa last month. She was alerted to the presence of a predator by a herd of impalas’ cries and came across the rare sight of the python enjoying its meal. The acid in the python’s stomach will break everything from this impala down, including hooves and horns. Digestion of such a big meal may take weeks, during which the snake will be more vulnerable to predators. But after such a meal this snake might not need to feed again for up to a year.
