The incredible moment a diamond python devoured a giant possum on a roof in Australia was caught on camera by a photographer. According to the Daily Mail, snake catcher Stuart McKenzie was called to a house in Mooloolaba, north of Brisbane, Australia, to catch a large python that was spotted on the roof. The snake had already captured a possum, and McKenzie captured the moment when the snake swooped down from the roof and swallowed the possum whole.
Facebook users were amazed by the snake’s strength and ability to hang from the gutter with such a heavy weight in its mouth.
While possums can grow up to 1 meter long, diamond pythons can reach up to 3 meters in length. Despite their size, diamond pythons are not harmful to humans, although they typically prey on rats, kangaroos, and sometimes even family pets.
This incredible scene is a reminder of the power and grace of these majestic creatures, and the importance of respecting their place in the natural world.
It also highlights the crucial role of snake catchers like Stuart McKenzie, who play a vital role in safely relocating snakes to their natural habitats and protecting both humans and animals from harm.
