Description: Indian Python (Python molurus molurus). This was a chance capture of Python swallowing a small (full grown - according to reliable literature this is impossible!) spotted deer in the forests of Mudumalai near Theppakadu on the edge of Moyar river, partially concealed in Lantana bushes. The entire act took about three hours. Surprisingly, contrary to popular belief, the python moved away quietly soon after entire deer was inside. .
