Snake hunters Norman and Sally Hill witnessed this chilling story at a house near Ipswich, Australia, on January 2nd. It took several hours for the starving snake to consume the entire body of the gigantic prey.
Sally mentioned that in her years of interacting with snakes, she had never encountered such a bizarre incident. Based on her understanding, she believes that the increasing snake population combined with limited food resources has led to this survivalist behavior.
