The brutal circle of life. You won’t see this in a Disney movie, that’s for sure.

This giant snake died after swallowing a 30lb porcupine – which punctured its insides with its razor-sharp quills.

The four-metre African rock python was found beneath a rocky ledge at Lake Eland Game Reserve in South Africa.

Its innards had been lacerated by dozens of quills from the porcupine while trying to digest its meal. (Daily Mail)
