This snippet from the acclaimed Discovery Channel documentary “Wildest Islands Of Indonesia” is a snake extravaganza.
Here’s why it’s got 10 million views.
Firstly, the deadly King Cobra from Sumatra:
“One venomous bite from this King Cobra is enough to kill a fully grown Asian elephant.”
The Greek for King Cobra translates to ‘Snake Eater’. We get to see why…
In the video, the King Cobra paralyzes another snake and swallows it whole. Once digested, it won’t need to eat for several months.
And now for the main attraction.
The Reticulated Python, 10 meters long, is Indonesia’s largest predator. It’s also the longest snake on earth. Its body is as wide as a human’s.
The video shows it strangle and swallow a 30kg deer whole, feeding it for 12 months.
