Olive Python Makes Meal Of An Agile Wallaby Bigger Than Its Whole Size

A ranger on patrol in the Northern Territory was astonished by a jaw-dropping display of python power. Paul O’Neill, a ranger at the Nitmiluk National Park near Katherine, heard a caᴄᴏᴘhony of bird noises ᴄʟᴏsᴇ to the tourist visitor center when he was on patrol.

He examined the sᴄᴇɴᴇ and discovered an olive python trying to ingest a young, agile wallaby. He was able to get those images of the python trying its best to eat the not exactly Bɪᴛᴇ-sized meal.

According to Greg Smith of the Territory Wildlife Park, the snake nearly overindulged on this specific dish. The largest piece of ᴍᴇᴀᴛ the animal could possibly devour, he remarked.

The snake would go into hiding for at least a month while it took about five to seven days for the wallaby to be fully digested. The snake has a medium build and will likely begin searching for more prey between four and eight weeks from now.

According to Mr. Smith’s prior experience with breeding and managing hundreds of snakes, each has a different appetite. Even if they are overweight and have recently eaten, some snakes will start ʜᴜɴᴛing for food, but typically that meal would be enough to keep that snake alive for at least three months, he said.
