The shocking moment a hungry cobra eats another snake whole


This is the shocking moment a cannibalistic
snake was caught on camera – eating another snake. The hungry cobra was spotted sinking its fangs
into a mole snake before devouring it and it didn’t make light work of its serpent supper
taking almost one hour to finish it. The unusual images of the cannibal serpent
were captured by Thinus van Staden while on holiday in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South
Africa. Thinus, 40, said he was just 20 metres away
from the action when he captured the images. ‘This photo opportunity came as a big surprise. I was the only one who witnessed it. It was in the heat of the day, so most other
holiday makers were resting in the camp.’ he said. ‘I must admit, given that both are snakes,
I didn’t feel sorry for the Mole Snake. If it would’ve been a mammal, I probably would
have felt different. ‘I was, however, very glad that I wasn’t
in the Cobra’s path. ‘I’ve been taking photographs long before
digital photography started, but I’ve never ever seen something like this. Not even close. ‘To be honest, it is quite difficult just
to see a snake, let alone one snake eating another.’
