Children's python

This Children's python (Antaresia childreni) is devouring a small frog. Witnessing snake predation events is quite rare so I'm very happy to have been able to walk away with a photo before seeing the rest of the frog go down. Children's pythons in the Top End emerge from rock crevices and other subterranean hideouts shortly after the sun goes down to relocate to a suitable spot, often along along creekbeds, from which to ambush passing frogs... #childrenspython #python #antaresiachildreni #antaresia #snake #eating #snakeswallowingprey #herping #fieldherping #snakefeeding #predation #australia #australiananimals #ausgeo #australianmuseum #canonaustralai #NTaustralia #Nature #wildtropics
