The parrot was quite large, but a carpet Python swallowed it like it was a piece of cake. Those terrifying moments were captured by wonderfully by the homeowner. He sent it to snake catcher Stuart McKenzie and Mckenzie said that they were kind of cool. The pictures are from Agnes Waters, Queensland.
And the poor bird unbelievably disappears into snake's mouth.
..gripping its body and swallowing it the whole. Surprisingly the snake did it hanging from the gutter of a woman's home.
Stuart McKenzie is a Sunshine Coast-based reptile expert and a snake catcher. He has dealt with hundreds of snake-related call-outs every summer.
.. saying 'so cool. Nature at work. Some bird lovers may not like these pictures but the reality is that snakes eat birds, and guess what, birds eat snakes. Circle of life. Enjoy these awesome pictures'.
..'Carpet pythons will take on anything. Any bird that lands too close, they will have a go... they're opportunistic.'
Bird's feathers are the only visible thing.
