One gluttonous 16-foot python was caught on camera devouring two goats in the Malaysian state of Pahang.
The greedy-gut reptile pounced on its next meal after it managed to slither through the village’s wire fence, according to the Daily Mail.

Stunned onlookers watched it laid out on the ground with its body bulging out in the middle, just waiting for it to digest the two goats.
The python was reportedly so fat that it couldn’t even fight off frightened villagers who curiously poked at its belly with sticks.
It was eventually tied up and hauled off in a truck.
“This was the longest python I have ever seen,” resident Akouck Joe Gank was quoted as saying. “He ate two goats from a farm and couldn’t move. That’ll teach him to be so greedy. It needed three of four men to lift the python away. He was long, very long.”
Snakes can regularly engulf meat up to 75-100% of their size, according to the National Geographic, meaning they could eat an entire human being if they wanted to. But don’t let that stop you from going on your next trip to Malaysia.
This obviously isn’t the first time a humongous python has gone after livestock in the Southeast Asian country.
In November, 34-year-old goat owner Firdaus Abdullah stumbled upon a python with a full stomach and stretched to about 20 feet in length. Abdullah told Malay Mail Online that it was the third time his goats have disappeared and strongly believed the animals were all eaten by snakes.
