Python eats Alligator in Everglades and feels sick


So here it is, the infamous Python vs Alligator photo

This is what happens when pythons are released into the Everglades. The pythons get eyes bigger than their stomachs and think it's safe to eat a whole crocodile.

The python was found with the gator's hindquarters protruding from its midsection. Its stomach still surrounded the alligator's head, shoulders, and forelimbs.

Scientists have documented four encounters between the giant snakes and alligators in the last three years. The encroachment of Burmese pythons into the Everglades could threaten an $8 billion restoration project and endanger smaller species.

Wikipedia notes the invasiveness of the Python:

Native to southern Asia, the Burmese python is a relatively new invasive species in the Everglades. The species can grow up to 20 feet (6.1 m) long and they compete with alligators for the top of the food chain. Florida wildlife officials speculate that pet owners released their pythons and they have begun reproducing rapidly in an environment for which they are well-suited

Snakes on a Highway!

A happy, well fed python sits on a highway after swallowing a pregnant ewe in the village of Kampung Jabor which is about 200km east of Kuala Lumpur. The six-metre snake weighing 90kg was too laden to move, making it easy for local firemen to capture it.. with what looks like a piece of rope.

Snails: good for stomping on.


So like don't you just love it when it rains over night and it causes snails to run for cover to the foot paths so you can then stomp on them on your way to work in the morning? I just love the sound they make. Crunchy like an apple about to be turned into cider. In the name of pest control of course. Someone has to save those cabbages...

Squishy like Elle Driver's eyeball.

I have a Crunchie bar. They are made of gold you know! What you got? I tried a Milo bar yesterday. While you get more go with Moro, this wasn't so bad. It was crunchy like one of those kremalta covered chocolate rice bubble things my mum used to make me and the Ginger Ningas for birthday parties and school lunches. 

If you, dear reader, did not have a mum who made you chocolate rice bubble things then NEWSFLASH!

She didn't love you.

You were simply a food bill.
