Very interested. A small toad can kill a small snake. I have seen that before. But that was by poisoning. This one is rather interesting. A small porcupine can also kill a snake as big and powerful as a python! Here's how although I guess you already know it. A few months ago, a python was found dead in South Africa. Its belly was swollen in an uncommon way. All the central part of its body was very swollen. Vets were suspecting the damage was done by another animal, but they never imagined what it really was. To discover what had caused the snake’s death, the vets practiced an autopsy and found something unexpected. The python had a porcupine inside. The porcupine was 31 inches long and weighed 29 pounds. The porcupine’s spines had torn all the python’s entrails. The mammal was already dead. It was a surprise for all to discover what was inside the python.
