Great mkamionka 2019-01-23 2:28

Ciao Luciano,
this is certainly slightly different from your usual butterfly friends :)
I wonder if the snake knows its limits, how much can it swallow... or he would try to strangle a victim first and then attempt to fit it in its mouth.
Anyway, great wild life capture, very well spotted and better that you have spotted it before it spotted you :)

Default To mkamionka: Constrictors

Witaj Mariusz

I have seen some quite emphatic comments on youtube that it is impossible for a snake to swallow a human being because the human skull would not pass through the snake's mouth. But they forget the crushing ,constricting power of the giant snake coiled around its victim, and literally squeezing the life out of it, as well as breaking bones (and skulls) for easier digestion. Here's a recent case of an unfortunate woman being eaten by a snake that disproves our ignorant youtube friend.
