- It had swallowed an adult wallaby whole

- It's belly bulged disproportionately compared with the rest of its long body

A huge five-meter python in Queensland, Australia had a belly so big after swallowing an adult wallaby whole that it was mistaken for a crocodile.

A neighbor alerted a woman, identified as Rini Steenwinkel, that there was a crocodile in her backyard on Wednesday, April 26.

However, upon having a closer look, they realized it was a python that was almost immobilized by the large meal it had just devoured.

Steenwinkel called a snake catcher to remove the snake, but even he had to call a colleague to help remove it because it was too large and heavy.

The snake catcher estimated that the python and the wallaby in its stomach weighed a combined 40kg.
