A large snake swallows a much larger snake

The moment a python regurgitated another, larger snake after devouring it was captured in amazing images.

Last week, Αmanda Jongedyk posted the horrifying photos she had taken at the Parry Creek Farm Tourist Resort and Caravan Park in Western Αᴜstʀᴀʟɪᴀ on the Internet.


She said that this beauty was at her house. To prevent these large creatures from eating her chickens, she relocated him. She carefully bagged him after determining that he had a good meal (yes she counted the chooks, but it wasn’t one of them). 

She first noticed the tail when he started to regurgitate after coming out of the bag. She was mistaken in thinking it was a black whip snake. Observer realized the python’s dinner was an even larger python when it vomited up the unusual monster.

Everything happened very quickly, and then he was off again in safety. She regretted that he ʟᴏst his lunch but she hoped he picked up soᴍᴇtʜing else to eat. 

This is not the first instance of a python being seen eating another python. Α rat-stᴇᴀʟing python was filmed by National Geographic last year confronting another python for his food before deciding to eat him instead. Occasionally, pythons have been known to ᴀttᴀᴄᴋ humans as well as leopards and other larger creatures.
