A python has tried to eat a deer so big that it was forced to vomit it out whole.

The greedy snake in Florida clearly overestimated the size of its own stomach as it tried to devour the white-tailed deer fawn that was much bigger than itself.

In fact, the fawn was four and half pounds heavier than the snake, which simply couldn't stomach the animal, according to the Metro newspaper.

Biologists have suggested that it is the biggest python-to-prey ratio ever recorded, which underlined the size of the snake's ambitions.
