As I was reading psychiatrist Dr. Jim Tucker’s “Return to Life”, I found an interesting case* taken from his mentor Dr. Ian Stevenson in which one of his associates, Francis Story visited a man in Thailand who claimed to have been reincarnated from a life as a snake.

It seemed that he had been a python in his previous life and had been killed by a local hunter. He also claimed to have been a deer in his life before the python. The man’s name was Dalawong and when he was three, he came face to face with the man who killed him in his life as a snake. He was able to give details that only the man would know.

Interestingly enough, Dalawong also suffered from ichthyosis, wherein the skin takes on the appearance of fish scales.

The case is extremely interesting because it would suggest that some humans have had recent animal past lives.
