JUNAGADH: It is being said that a python can swallow a prey bigger than itself. A similar incident was caught on camera when a 20-feet long python was seen swallowing a blue bull (Nilgai) in Junagadh district of Gujarat.

The authorities of the Girnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Junagadh, were informed about the python through a telephonic message by a farmer, who first noticed it.

“Python roams around the wildlife sanctuary and they could rarely be seen. We got a telephonic message of a farmer that a python has swallowed a big animal. We sent a rescue team immediately and found that a python has swallowed a blue bull,” said Assistant Conservator of Forest S.D. Tilala.

Tilala said they would release the python soon after it digests the blue bull.

“It was 18-20 feet long. We will keep it under observation and transport the animal to some other place so that it does not injure other people. ” he said.
