A carpet python(?) eating a wallaby IMO, the sizes of both would be about right. Nonetheless a cool pic though.

Yeah, it's obviously NOT a buffalo... I'm also guessing that how the photograph was taken that it makes both animals look MUCH larger than it really is...

The post with the python biting the fence... Why would a python latch itself to the fence? The first pic looks photoshopped, as the head looks distored, especially at the tip of the head. The second one ALSO looks photoshopped... the wiring looks completely fake.

well hun, you can't just google images, save them and repost them without giving credit to the original source. Some images may have copyrights to them and you would be in violation. So please stop creating these threads, without the original source.

I apologize for not providing a link for my photos as I've had them saved in one of my 'pics' folders for quite some time. I'm unsure of their origin.

I do remember that the snake had apparently been eating sheep from a ranch and that the wire/fence was electric. I'd imagine that the snake had bitten the fence in an attempt to get it to 'stop electrocuting' it.

I will be more respectful in the future and post origins of pics.

I don't think that either pic is photoshopped. The first is just a snake latched on to a small animal. Notice there is nothing in the photo for scale. In other larger files (they've come up in this forum before), you can see that its not a buffalo but some sort of deer, probably a small one.

Same with the other photo. Its a fat snake, with nothing for scale in the photo, thus, it appears huge.

Its all in perspective and indications of scale. These photos here weren't photoshopped, they're absolutely real, just the perspective is whacked.

Photos from San Juan Photo, which has lots of great stuff on it.

regards the snake vs " buffalo " -

looking at the prey , its hind legs are huge , as is its tail - with small fore limbs - a juvenille roo ? ????

as for size - i doubt it is very big

regards the snake in the fence :

look at where the snake jaws touch the wires - its gums are distorted - that makes me think its probally genuine

as for size - as NYGDAN points out - there is no perspective - if you assume the fence wires are std guage wre , then guessing the pitch on the post - gives you a large but not abnormal snake in an embarrasing pickle

its a rock python - common in africa - and size wise i would guesstimate 15 feet

It is obvious the snake is completing an electic fence circuit, and is dead. The muscle contractions made it latch onto the fence. Take a closer look.

I've seen both of the images before, both on ATS and other sites.

Both pics have been verified. And yes, the fence one is because it is electric. The pictures are probably originally from this site:

The Rock python is Africa's largest snake. The rock python eats mammals and birds......
.....The snake in this picture had eaten a full grown Impala ewe and, sadly, caught itself in an electric fence.
Over four metres in length, this was a large specimen.

My best guess is that it didn't actually die from the body touching, but that it got stuck in the fence because of the full stomach, and struck at the fence with it's fangs (Thinking it was some sort of animal holding it, or something), and then got finished off.

I can't find the original source of the python eating the kangaroo/wallaby any more though.

fattyp pics aren't fake or photoshoped.

I've already seen them on internet ( don't remember where ). I saved them on my HD with these name " Python 01 & 02 " . I guess I did it because it's a Python.

There was also another one, with a guy standing behind the snake. He wasn't so close of the pyhton and was really taking care of what he was doing.

fattyp, where'd you get your pic? i agree it's pretty creepy, but i want to know where it's from and exactly what it is.

The pic of the snake in the fence is real, i saw actual video footage on tv somewhere the other day. It took afew men to sort the situation out. And the snake didnt die.

My God, that's a HUGE snake.

Glad the 3 times I've been to Australia I've never run into one yet.

I ran into a 5 foot Guyana though at Pebbly Beach, he was big. I don't have the picture on this comp, or I'd share it.
