Gulp! Python swallows a possum whole as it dangles from a tree

Tourists were treated to their very own nature show this week after spotting a massive python devouring a possum (little fox) as he swung from a tree. The suspected carpet python, who soon began to draw a crowd, was pictured hanging in the tree by its tail as it swallowed the possum, whose legs and tail were still sticking out of the snake’s mouth.  According to the head reptile keeper with the Australian Reptile Park, Dan Rumsey, it is not unusual for pythons to eat animals several times their size. They aren’t venomous but they have teeth, so they use their teeth and their constrictions to consume their prey.
