Porcupines are often attacked by other animals that are trying to cash in on a huge feast. However, it’s a decision that is usually regretted instantly.
Case in point: this African rock python made a meal out of a porcupine at a game reserve in South Africa, only to suffer the consequences a day later.
Once the snake was cut open, it was clear that the porcupine’s quills caused fatal internal injuries.
