Animal encounters in the wild are mesmerising and scary at the same time and a recent video of a python preying on an unsuspecting deer is blowing people’s minds online.

The video shows a huge reptile leaping out of a pond and attacking a wild deer in the blink of an eye. Shared by forest official Susanta Nanda on Twitter, the video shows a small herd of deer drinking water in a muddy swamp and a python appears out of thin air and coils its body around its prey before finally grabbing the deer by its neck.

While sharing the clip, which was captured on an e-surveillance camera of Central Chanda Division in Maharashtra, the official highlighted how quickly pythons can hunt down its prey — only a quarter of the time humans need to blink their eyes.

“When pythons kill prey, they use a kind of ambush technique by jumping & striking the prey, grabbing it with their teeth in around 50 milliseconds only. ( Humans take 200ms to blink an eye),” Nanda wrote.

The video quickly went viral and although most found it quite astonishing, some felt it was terrifying.
