  • I'm sure everyone remembers this

    I'm sure most everyone here has seen the pic of the anaconda or python swallowing a human. Sorry I couldn't find a pic to post here for those who haven't seen it. Well I thought some of you might be interested on what the outcome of that picture is. The picture is false and was created by some idiot!! Here is what I found ontruthorfiction.com
    The Pictures of the Man-Eating Snake-Fiction!


    Summary of eRumor
    This eRumor comes in several versions.  All of them include pictures of a large snake that has obviously swallowed a very large meal.  Then there are pictures of a human body apparently being cut from the belly of the snake.  The differences among the versions are the location and explanation of the stories behind the pictures.


    The Truth
    TruthOrFiction.com is interested in tracking down the actual information about the pictures, but the consensus of the reptile experts that we have either talked with or discovered on the Internet is that the pictures are not what they are represented to be.

    The pictures of the engorged snake, for example, are more likely the aftermath of the snake having killed and eaten an animal.  The angular shape seems to be of some kind of four-legged creature rather than the form of a human.

    There are a few stories of large snakes killing humans, but not many of them swallowing humans.  The main reason, according to snake experts, is that snakes begin swallowing their prey at the head and with humans, the snake is confronted with a major obstacle when it gets to the shoulders.  Snakes can ingest remarkably large creatures, but need a more gradual contour to do it.  

    The snake in the pictures is variously described in the eRumors as a boa constrictor, anaconda, or a python.  The experts say it is a reticulated python.

    The pictures of the man or boy appear to be from a different incident and a different snake and, according to experts, were apparently staged.  They point out that the body is not in the kind of condition that would be true if it had been inside of a living snake.  There victim would be more covered in slime.  Also, the snake's entrails seem to be missing and were probably already removed prior to the entry of the body.   Additionally, some pictures show that whoever was brave enough to stick his head inside the carcass may have had the help of a plastic bag over his head.  Finally, if this person had been swallowed by a snake, he would have been swallowed head-first and his arms would be at his side.

    As for the location and the stories, TruthOrFiction.com has received several versions:

    ...That a crew member on a land oil rig in Amazonas was captured by the snake as he took a nap.
    ...A man in India was captured by a python as he napped by a roadside.
    ...The victim is one of three men in Brazil who were sleeping when attacked by an anaconda.
    ...That the victim was a crew member on an oil rig in Nouakchott, the capitol of Mauritania, West Africa.
    ...That the victim was in Indonesia.
    ...That the victim was in Ecuador.
    ...That the victim was in Peru.
    ...That the victim was in Borneo.
    ...That the victim was in Singapore.
    ...That the victim was in Venezuela


    A real example of the story as it has been circulated:

    A CREW MEMBER ON A LAND OIL RIG IN AMAZONAS WENT OUT AND TOOK A NAP. YES, A NAP. HE WAS MISSING AND THIS IS WHAT THEY FOUND.

    ANYONE WANT TO GO TO THE AMAZON?

          Okay those pics have been around for years and the validity of them was confirmed by the United States Foreign Travel minister or some stupid title like that as bogus made pictures. These pics were proven to be all doctored up. It's obvious that these Retics and Anacondas in the wild are big enough to eat a smaller person, but there has never been actual documentation. There have been people mostly kids that have disappeared and a large Anaconda was just seen in that area, but no actual proof that the person was eaten! There have also been eye witness statements, but a language barrier is sometimes more of a problem than the actual situation. Hey I'm just glad there are no 30 footer slithering around Philly because we would then find out.
