U re welcome :)

You mean identify the victim?

I'm not sure. Because the head is already gone. From its skin pattern and color, it could be juvenile phyton, or adult red-sided keelback snake (Xenochrophis Sp.), or cat snake (Boiga Sp.),

For the big one, I almost sure that it is a king Cobra who is popular as snake-eater.
