:Incredible shot HC, very interesting how a snake can swallow another snake larger than itself. Which must other than eels, be the perfect geometric shape for maximum ingestion.
:Do you know if your Clelia strangled the Bothrops / envenomated it, or swallowed the vipers heads alive & struggling?
:I have observed Kings & R. ringnecks eat snakes larger than themselves, I wonder in nature how often they expend the energy only to subdue a snake (or mammal in a burrow) that proves to be too large to swallow?

Huh whu. The perfect geometric shape for maximum ingestion? That's the most ridiculous statement I've heard on these forums yet. You're trying way too hard to sound credible. Give it a break ringworm.
