Here’s the story about a giant python that was devoured by a group of boars after it slithered into their pigsty on 7th October 2021.

OP: What a poor snake he is LOL.

Netizen: Better watch out, you could be next. 

OP: I’m so scared!

Netizens’ reactions aside, we hope the unfortunate python will rest in pieces – in peace.

Beyond establishing the rules of nature, we also think that the story teaches us a valuable lesson.

Don’t judge a book by its cover

Though the snake is well-known as the greatest hunter, it doesn’t mean the serpent can’t be hunted by other animals. The same can be said for humans.

Yesterday, you may have eaten porks, but today, they may be looking for human flesh at your doorstep.
