A snake has been filmed regurgitating nine chicken eggs shortly after it had raided a chicken coop in Hyderabad, India.

The video shows a man poking the snake with a stick, which startles it, the Daily Mail reported.

The snake struggles to move with the chicken eggs inside it and proceeds to regurgitate the eggs in order to escape.

In total nine whole eggs were spat out intact. It was unclear if the snake escaped with any more eggs.

Snakes swallow their food whole. Some, like big pythons, can swallow prey as big as a human being.
