Snake Eats Giant Lizard

It took a total of 5 hours for the snake to finish off the goanna, according to a eyewitness.

Pin It now!

Wow! That was ugly!
Though the snake seems somewhat helpless while being half-stuffed by poor lizard.

Snakes are extremely helpless while they're eating; especially if it's a large meal. They don't have the ability to "throw up" so once they start eating they have no choice but to finish.

There have been photographed cases of snakes eating animals too large for them and literally having their sides split.

So the hungriest ones are most dangerous then. Well, that's explains a lot.
Or maybe it's their detaching jaw that scares the hell out of me. Splitting sides? Yikes!

If a meal is to large snakes do have the ability to 'throw up' (correct term is regurgitate) prey items but in remote areas where food is scarce they tend to keep going and finish it.
