|A 7 ft Asian Water Monitor (Varanus salvator macromaculatus)|
To my surprise, it was looking for something in the bushes. Baby pythons! It is actually raiding a Reticulated Python nest. I was looking at the gore scene while clicking some photos. It gulped 4 young pythons and was digging for more. It finally gulped two unhatched eggs as well. I was really shocked to see that Reticulated Pythons are breeding in this abandoned oil palm patches. Big momma python could be lurking nearby. No wonder I will hear news on pything entering houses during the rainy months.

|The prey is held and hurled left to right before swallowed whole|
|The monitor do took some bite from the young pythons|
