Immediately after catching the prey, the big python quickly climbed up the tree to make sure the meal was not stolen by people like hyenas, badgers, etc.
African star chicken, also known as star pheasant, pheasant chicken is one of the famous chicken species that possesses a very beautiful appearance like a beauty queen in the animal world in Africa. Therefore, when witnessing a black star chicken died in the mouth of a stone python, many people could not help but feel pity.
The story takes place near the famous Chobe River in Botswana and was captured by a guide while taking tourists on a tour. In the distance, he saw a large rock python enjoying his meal in the tree.
It is not clear how stone pythons can hunt chickens when the prey is also quite large and runs very fast. This is most likely the result of a calculated hunt from rock pythons.
Immediately after catching the prey, the big python quickly climbed up the tree to make sure the meal was not stolen by people like hyenas, badgers, etc. Once settled in the tree, it comfortably enjoys its meal.
It doesn’t take too long for the rock python to squeeze its prey and slowly swallow the star chicken into its stomach. A meal like this can keep it full for a few days without having to hunt for food.
