After a long-fought battle in Australia, a python bested a crocodile and swallowed the reptile whole over a span of several hours in Queensland, Australia.
The snake reportedly fought the croc for five hours in Lake Moondarra. Winning the fight, the python constricted its prey to death. The estimated 10-foot snake then dragged the 3-foot croc ashore and proceeded to swallow it whole in front of a group of onlookers.
National Geographic identified the snake as an olive python and the croc as a Johnson’s crocodile, both of which are native to Australia. After its hefty meal, the python should be full for at least a month.
so basically keep your kids and pets out of reach of these fuckers
This makes me so happy. God I love animals
Callias, Hester and Xe seem to be settling in really well- it’s endlessly fun to watch them explore their new world and play with one another. Their personalities shine through brightly, and it’s easy to see that they all have different thoughts and feelings to one another. Hester (pure gold) remains aloof and distant to the other two. Callias (black tips) and Xe (gold and white) have become very close and spend most of their time digging in the roots of the anubias and following me around as if begging to be a part of my day-to-day activities. When feeding time comes, I allow them to eat two pellets each and they seem comfortable with this arrangement. Xe has decided to make it his personal mission to annoy and harass the 2 snails that live with them, though they are much too large for him to eat (for now).
The three goldfish are growing so quickly that we’re already looking into upgrading them into a larger area. Thoughts on whether or not it’s possible to set up a small pond on our balcony are at the forefront of our minds. I find myself chastising them for their growth and telling them to behave and slow down! -May
Hey there! Check out craigslist or other ads. I found these amazingly large 100g tree planters for a great price.I patched the holes with pond liner patches and it’s been holding water close to a year now with no problems. When I first set it up:Here’s a photo just before winter. Add a nice pond filter and something like this would make a lovely home for your beauties and just looks really nice on a porch or patio. I wish I had bought a few more of these when I had the chance. :)
