Over the week, a monitor lizard was seen swallowing a large python in the Sungei Ulu Pandan, Singapore, according to videos and photos

Posted on a public Facebook group called Nature Society (Singapore), the monitor lizard's mealtime was being witnessed by curious onlookers who were seen documenting the somewhat terrifying event.
