Enormous python swallows possum whole

While enjoying a walk back from Byron Bay’s lighthouse on the weekend, Michelle Hunjak and her sister Simone came across a horrifying scene.

A colossal carpet python devouring a ringtail possum.

While most of us would probably consider this a horrifying scene, self-confessed snake-lover, Michelle, described the experience as “amazing.”

“I really love snakes so it was amazing to see the feeding in person. I had no idea they would be able to eat something like that,” Michelle told 9news.com.au.

The python is believed to have been approximately four and a half feet long and it’s not unusual for them to eat things seven times as big as their heads.

The “feeding” reportedly took 15 minutes before the giant reptile swallowed the entire possum.
