    So it was feeding time again for my snake, Spot. But this time it was a bit different:
    #1
    [​IMG]
    #2 She tagged the rat as she normally does
    [​IMG]
    #3 Weird thing was, she started eating beginning with the front legs. I thought, she will manouvre around a bit and get the head then.
    [​IMG]
    #4 But then i saw this. Whats wrong with it? Well, you can see both the butt and the nose of the rat.
    [​IMG]
    #5 She folded the rat and i bet you can imagine, thats not an easy way to eat.
    [​IMG]
    #6 I thought she wasnt able to get the rat down here throat, when positioned like this.
    [​IMG]
    #7 But i was wrong, as soon as the head went in, it folded back to the original position and she could swallow the rest of the rat the normal way
    [​IMG]
    And after a big meal, comes a big yawn
    [​IMG]
    Got a bigger resolution of the last one, you can see it HERE

    Thanks for looking

    Maybe she was folding the rat like that to squeeze out any excess air? :D

    Nice shots.

    Is the Hi-res a lens, camera or post production thing?

    Perhaps "spot" thinks that eating a folded over rat is like a taco?

    thanks for the comments everyone :)
    She sure is a beauty and still growing. Think she is about 1 meter now, weighing almost 1 kg.
    A taco eh, yeah maybe its a hint that she wants something different to eat :)
    And "Hi-Res" is high resolution. So the picture contains more pixels then the one posted here, thus being bigger so you can see more details.
