A giant python is depicted feeding on a rainbow lorikeet while hanging upside down. Stuart McKenzie, an Australian snake catcher from Australia’s Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 posted the photos to a social media account.
The image shows the coastal carpet python hanging upside down from the roof. The bird’s wings can also be seen on either side of the reptile, as its head is completely swallowed by the huge snake.
“Nature can be incredible and brutal at the same time!” Mr McKenzie wrote in the post’s caption.
It also read: Snakes eat beautiful birds or soft and cuddly possums from time to time, but keep in mind that rodents are one of their primary food sources.
The caption continued: Speeches play an important role in our environment, so please treat them with the respect they deserve.
The photos have gone viral on the internet since they were posted. It has received thousands of likes and comments.
Carpet pythons are found almost everywhere in Australia except Tasmania. They grow to 11 feet, but in some rare cases, especially large ones, they can reach 13 feet.
