What is known as at now is the fact that the python, which was 3.9 meters long, had its innards punctured due to the porcupines quills which are usually very sharp.

According to those who saw the python after it had died, it had rather huge eyes than normal and many are suggesting that it might have died a very painful death in fact it might not have anticipated the porcupine to retaliate and pull such a move.
