Here is a case of a leopard killing a python around 5+ meters.


Quote:At Chitabe, en route to camp from the airfield we saw a female leopard feeding on a huge python of well over five metres. After three days the leopard abandoned the now rotting carcass. On inspecting the python's skull we found distinct bite marks answering our question of the leopard had indeed killed the python herself.

Thats the only one posted that probably involves a 5m+ snake.

honey badgers are just fascinating in their durability. also snkaes have a disadvantage when facing an opponent like an equally big cat or badger head on!.
