Not knowing how, she decided to bring her python to a veterinary facility for examination. After checking, the veterinarians asked Insua: “Is this python around you every day?”. At the doctor’s question, Insua nodded to show that it was.
The veterinarians hastily asked Insua to immediately bring this python to the zoo and hand it over to them to take care of, absolutely not to let it stay next to Insua anymore. She was very surprised by this request, it was only when she heard the explanation from the doctor’s own mouth that she was startled. The doctors explained that: “The python suddenly stopped eating because it wanted to empty its stomach completely so that it could easily swallow its owner.
