The picture shows a large Olive python capturing dinner – a wallaroo or euro.
Note the size of the python, which if you look closely you can see disappearing out the right hand side of the frame. How much more of it is there, curled around the escarpment it so beautifully blends with?
It appears that the wallaby is already dead but swallowing it will require an awesome feat of strength from the python – not only to drag the ‘roo into it’s gut but also to hang on while it does so. It’s a large python but it’s still an impressive display of the incredible physiology of these reptiles. Click more for a larger view. Thanks to JR
