Man Eating Snakes!

Parental Discretion Advised - Not For The Squeamish!


snake_eating_man.gif (108611 bytes)

This picture is alleged to be the only known photograph ever taken of a snake eating a human (more like trying too). It was taken in Malaysia and printed in a local magazine there.

Apparently the snake couldn't get its mouth over the man's shoulders and therefor could not actually swallow him.

The person was dead (he suffocated) whether this is due to being contricted (most likely) or by having his head swallowed!


This next set of pictures allegedly shows the body of a person that was ingested by a snake.

The first two pictures allegedly show the snake before it was cut open, notice the large lump (is it me or does this look like a large log has been inserted into the abdomen of the snake?)


The final picture is supposed to show the actual 'lump' in the snake, this picture alleges to shows that is was a person that was actually swallowed by the snake and was in its stomach.

Firstly, the snakes head looks rather too small, not only to swallow the head, but impossibly small to actually be able to get it's jaws past the man's shoulders.

Make of it what you will!  - My own personal feeling is that these are staged photos.

Thanks for all the feedback and the many copies of these photos that I have received. I am still trying to find a copy of the story to go with the final three pictures.

Success! I have finally confirmed that this is a hoax! Here is a piece of an article from snopes that debunks it. 

"There isn't much to say about this one other than it's just another hoax similar to the one about a crocodile eating a Florida golfer: a hoax created by using some several-year-old photos out of context within a fictitious explanatory framework."

See snopes for more details.
