3/31/2005: Python eats kangaroo
Trilby Thursday Mar 31 03:38 PM
Am I noticing a theme?
Happy Monkey Thursday Mar 31 03:42 PM
That poor catfish thought it was a snake...

i had a wife who could do that once...
Atch Thursday Mar 31 04:43 PM
That'd be cool! You wouldn't have to feed her for a month.
lookout123 Thursday Mar 31 04:47 PM
i was referring more to the "crush the life out of you and swallow a man whole" parts actually.
breakingnews Thursday Mar 31 05:00 PM
I'm amazed at how the kangaroo just kinda disappears as the snake swallows it. It goes from a, well, kangaroo, to the size of a giant sausage or something.
Happy Monkey Thursday Mar 31 05:05 PM
Just imagine how thin we all could be if we just crushed our ribs to powder!

i wonder what friday's animal photo will be? an animal eating a human? well, if the human were wearing a PETA shirt i guess that would be ok.

Redefinition of "lump in my throat"..................

Just think what humans could swallow if our jaws could unhinge...lol
Billy Thursday Mar 31 11:15 PM
I want to know how the pix were taken.
Iggy Friday Apr 1 01:14 AM
Crazy picture though.
wolf Friday Apr 1 01:14 AM
(just in case some doesn't get it, think chrome and trailer hitch.)
edit to add: oh, I see someone else had the same thought.

Anybody got an idea of scale here? I'd like to know how big the roo is.
Wormfood Friday Apr 1 12:17 PM
Wonder how the snake can breathe at the same time..
lookout123 Friday Apr 1 12:32 PM
while eating, snakes can respirate through a small opening just to the front of the anus.
Elspode Friday Apr 1 01:30 PM
Okay...so what if something that wants to eat the snake comes along just after it has finished eating? How does it get away?
BigV Friday Apr 1 01:37 PM
wolf Friday Apr 1 01:55 PM
It doesn't. Snakes, as I recall, fall into a food induced stupor after they finish eating. Doesn't someone on here have reptile experience? Or was that just iguanas?

We have two pythons, one of which is still relatively small. The other is about 4-5 feet long, and won't be growing any bigger.

I lived with a guy once who had two boa constrictors. They were still around 4' long, so still eating just rats. It seemed every time we fed them - once every 4-5 weeks, there was always somebody who wanted to come over and watch. It was pretty cool to see, actually. For at least a week or so after they ate, they were very lethargic and a little irritable.

snake would probably LOVE a nice cold Fosters after a kangaroo that big. makes me thirsty just looking at it.

Gentlemen, please! Beware of constrictors.
Syrinx Monday Apr 4 01:28 AM
Anyone remember that one? Can't seem to find it on google...

It works when you're the baddest mofo in the valley.
mrnoodle Thursday Apr 7 01:02 PM
When a snake that has just fed is threatened, it can pretty quickly regurgitate its meal. You people watch Animal Planet, you should know that
wolf Thursday Apr 7 01:05 PM
The last thing I watched was that special on Dragons. I don't spend a lot of time on Animal Planet. I watch less than three hours of TV/day, often none. I need to save that precious amount of time for Hannity and O'Reilly ...

...and then there's always fishin' for 'roos...
BigV Thursday Jun 30 02:08 PM
Let me be the first to say "What the f*ck?!?!"
wolf Thursday Jun 30 02:09 PM
I'm not so sure I want to visit Australia any more ...
capnhowdy Thursday Jun 30 03:28 PM
I'm sure I don't want to.
dar512 Thursday Jun 30 04:57 PM
Just don't doze off at the edge of the river.
xoxoxoBruce Thursday Jun 30 10:02 PM
How in hell did that happen??
jinx Thursday Jun 30 10:13 PM
Maybe the kangaroo fell in and drowned.
footfootfoot Friday Jul 1 03:23 AM
we can only hope.
Clodfobble Friday Jul 1 10:25 AM
It's possible--but on the other hand, both my pet pythons have been known to move their mouse prey to the water bowl to drown them once they're all wrapped around them.
wolf Friday Jul 1 11:50 AM
Lazy, or conserving energy?
Clodfobble Friday Jul 1 12:03 PM
My guess is lazy, it's not like they have to roam the desert for weeks to find food.
xoxoxoBruce Saturday Jul 2 12:17 AM
Kind of like dunking your cookie in the milk. It goes down easier.
