Burmese Pythonon November 15, 2010
Burmese pythons or Python molurus bivittatus are very large snakes that kill their prey by asphyxiation, which is achieved through constriction. To prevent its prey from escaping, the python uses specially designed teeth to seize hold of its prey as it’s killed. Afterwards, the prey is swallowed completely.
