More than he can chew....


We were out for a little drive over the weekend...I first spotted what I thought was a fish on some rocks.  I thought it was one someone had caught and threw up there to die. I didn't look close at first...then when I looked back it had moved...



It tried to flip and wiggle to get loose, but it really had no chance...


The snake drug it back this far and was still there when we left...I wonder what the outcome was.  It looks a bit to big for the snake.

I don't like snakes! I will get away as fast as I could. But on second thought, great idea to snap some photos since the snake is stuck with its meal!

Oh wow...what a capture, Rose! I am pretty sure that although it may have taken a while, the snake was able to take in the whole thing. WOW!

Oh my! It does seem a bit big but I'll bet that snake figured out a way.

That looks like a rather oversized meal.

The end result was the fish in the snake belly. How do they open their mouths so wide. I once read a story about an Anaconda that actually swallowed a whole man. It was in South America. The man had gone to take a nap in his truck bed. When friends went to look for him, they found the snake in the process of swallowing and it had gotten all the way down to his feet. I don't know anything good about ANY snake. I love all nature...except snakes!!

Amazing pictures Rose. I once saw a snake swallow a frog. It took six hours at the side of my front door. It was not a poisonous snake but animal control told me to let it be and once it had eaten its meal, the snake would leave. I kept checking every now and again. Our son was young and I was waiting for him to come home from school. I was very relieved when it eventually left.
