While doing educational shows, we have talked to many people from Africa and South East Asia who have told us that the biggest reason for carrying their kids on their shoulders was to avoid having one "go lost". Not to tigers or lions, but to snakes.

I've read that a 16' african rock python was found with a 160 lb gazelle inside of it.

A lot of people in South East Asia are small boned, and light weight compared to the average European.

If these pictures are real, which they very likely are, then I do feel sorry for the persons family, that these pictures get circulated in offices across the world as much as they do.

Those are some nasty pictures I wished I would have took the warning more seriously. My vote is that a snake of that size could eat a human no problem just my thoughts though. About the pics......... I dont know if they are real or not all I know is I dont want to see them again.
It's not that I'm lazy; it's that I just don't care.

The reason why I think these picures are real myself, is that in these countries why would anyone be conserned about creating some fake snake attack? As well, do you think they have the money to set up something like this for some prank?

The snakes head is barely bigger than that guys hand.. So it looks.. Wasn't aware they were able to eat something about 4 times as big as there head.. As for JD's pics I remember a story line about the snake being caught and killed in South America, and being a retic just makes me think for a few seconds.. DO you guys have the story line?

these photos are displayed on Midwest tongs site sins there sad happening, just email Robert he knows all about these and more sad accidents.

Also Kameran from Bushmaster reptiles know very well about the history of these photos. In fact most professional breeders knows everything about them, ask Bob Clark!
However before you go and disturb these peoples with something they’ve been asked too many times already, let me tell you THESE ARE NO FAKE PHOTOS real peoples died and real families still suffer the lost. Also I can vouch from experience large pythons in my care have surprised me by eating pigs I tot way to big for them! How many of you have herd about hatchelling retic eating an adult rat? Well the proportions are quit similar to these photos.
Herpetoculture isn’t an exact science!!

No offence but I agree in the nature of things snakes do not know that we are not part of the food chain

Absolute Bull ****, a snake can not swallow a human.

Really? So an 18ft retic or green anaconda couldnt take down a young kid? maybe teenager?

your post? yea now thats B.S. it can happen, it all just depends on the size of the snake and the size of the human
