Rat snake having dinner (8 imgs)

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by JenGrace, May 15, 2007.

  1. I shoot primarily plants and animals (although I'm really interested in street right now). Here's a set of 8 of a rat snake eating a dead lizard. The rat snake was only about 8 or 10 inches long. If some of you saw this at DGrin, I apologize in advance. :wink:

    1. Sniffing out dinner.

    One of my favorite snakes. WE'd all be up to our armpits in mice/rats without them. Lizard had dead a while it looks like.

    Interesting images.
     
  10. Thank you for the comment...I'm glad you like it. :cool:

    Thanks for looking, Jeff. Snakes are important, that's for sure. :smile:

    Thanks for stopping to look. :smile:
     
  13. Excellent! Thanks for posting these.
     
  14. Neat series Jen. Nice catch. Did he taste like chicken after you grilled him up for lunch? *-)
     
  15. Excellent series! As a former owner of several snakes, including a few rats, I enjoyed this. Was this taken in the wild?

  18. Thanks for looking! :smile:

    You know, he was a little too small for that. He would have shrunk down the size of an angel hair pasta noodle and wouldn't have been filling at all. :tongue:

    It was taken at a botanical garden in Orlando. Thanks for your kind comments. :smile:

    Thank you, I'm glad you liked them!

    Hehe, I like snakes though, so it wasn't a problem for me. Thanks for commenting. :biggrin:
