The Python Experience in Gir...
It was a common boring non-rainy day on 7th of July, 2010. When suddenly i got a call from my Snake Master friend, Darshan Vadolia. He came to know that there's a python eating up a spotted deer somewhere in the vicinity of Junagadh, Gujarat. So we hurriedly reach to the place, didnt want to miss even a single moment. But the place was some one and a half hour bike ride from Junagadh. So we reached there as fast as v can.
And after reaching the location, we were anxiously searching for the python. We could see the python scales on the ground, as big as markings made by a truck wheel and assumed that the snake has swallowed the deer. We knew that since the python is fully filled up, he/she cudnt go far away. So we kept following the drag marks. And OMG what were we seeing was a 10 footer python lying amidst the thicket with its tummy filled with a spotted deer. This was first experience of the kind so our adrenaline was rushing high. The tummy of the snake was looking like a warehouse. The snake was unable to move, cud only move its head in all directions taking our scent. I took a couple of photographs and left the snake undisturbed. We saw the complete scene for 10 minutes and didnt want to disturb the gorgeous reptile so decided to leave.
What a moment it was to c a python having a spotted deer in its belly!!!
