This is the moment villagers found a 20ft female python mating with a male – before shooting them both to cook them in a stir fry. Locals were out hunting when they heard strange noises coming from inside a fallen tree on Saturday afternoon on the Malaysian island of Borneo.
They used a chainsaw to cut through the bark and found the romping reptiles – which are considered a delicacy in the remote Sarawak region. Several men dragged the beasts out before they were shot and hauled into a truck to be served up after being fried or grilled in accordance with local culinary customs.
Local Tinsung Ujang, 60, said villagers in the town of Bintulu near the Kelawit River would feast on the meat for the next few days.
