A large snake had been an headache to Nigerian villagers because it have been eating their livestock.
Together, the villagers killed the snake. Because of its greater size than the other snakes they decided to cut its belly, thinking that it would contain their animals.
But instead, they found something else. The animal had a large amount of eggs in its stomach.
Snake eggs are a very expensive dish in the African region. And the villagers were thinking of selling them at very high price.
