A Snake Swallows a Python Whole

Jan 3, 2017 - A snake eating another snake is not a common sight. While eastern brown snakes such as the one seen in this video have been known to eat smaller snakes, it's rare to see one attempt to swallow something as big as this carpet python.

Filmed by Sally and Norm Hill from N&S Snake Catchers, the footage captures the eastern brown meticulously devouring a python on a family's back patio. The snake was given three hours to eat before being relocated away from people, where it slithered off unharmed after its filling meal.
