The two big snakes
This is the stomach-churning moment a cobra was found after swallowing a whole python.
Terrified residents saw the highly venomous Philippine cobra in a rice field in Davao del Sur in the south of the country.
It had killed the reticulated python and swallowed it whole, with only its victim's tail hanging from its jaws.

After the cobra was killed, residents used a machete to cut it open. The incident was captured in a remote village near the town of Kibalawan on the island of Mindanao in the south of the Philippines.
One villager said: 'There are lots of snakes in our area, but this is the first time we saw a cobra eat a python.
