Hey @Pckts 

This may sound like a stupid question, but how did these Pythons manage to swallow adult humans?

If  I am correct, aren't Pythons unabl to swallow humans due to their relatively broad shoulders?

Is it because these humans were small in size?

I was always under the impression that adults were too large but assuming they are small enough I guess it's possible.

@Styx38, there was another case from Indonesia where a 7 metre long reticulated python had eaten a person:

I read that too many years ago. That theory was never convincing as they could manage to fit in a deer. So why would a human shoulder present an obstacle? Anyway, with the recent instances, I think they will need to revise that theory.

Watch the documentary, "Tiger 24" filmed by Warren Pereira. It was quite informative, and presented a neutral stand on the case. There was T-24's lifestory and his interactions with his family. It was suggested that if T-24 was the killer, it all probably started after his failed treatment in 2009 where he woke up in the middle of the treatment. Discussed various eye witness accounts from the 4 killings. Discussed other possible suspects, like T-72 and T-28. Discussed the problems faced by T-39 Noor and her cubs once T-24 was taken away, how T-57 claimed the territory and the 2 cubs that Noor had at that time went up north of the park, never to be seen again. There were opinions from park officials and activists. No particular being can be blamed. Bureaucracy was the biggest culprit.

Man and woman who were killed by a Leopard in Mysore, India.

"Mysuru: With two young lives lost to man animal conflict in a span of one month, the spotlight is back again on the burning issue that continues to prolong with no solution in sight.

Meghana a 23-year-old student died after she was attacked by a leopard at S Kebbehundi village in T Narasipur taluk in Mysuru district on the night of December 1. She was a final year BCom student at Government Degree College, T Narsipur

She was in the backyard of her house, when the leopard hiding in the bushes pounced on her. The injured Meghana was rushed to Government Hospital in T Narasipur, but in vain, as she had succumbed to the injuries in transit.

Exactly a month ago on October 31, Manjunath aged 20 years was killed in a similar incident, near Magadur Lingaiahanahundi village in the same taluk. He was a BCom student at Maharaja’s College in Mysuru. He along with his friends had gone to the temple at Mallappa Hill near the village, when the leopard attacked him. Though his friends made an attempt to scare away the leopard, it proved little help in saving Manjunath’s life.
