A python struggled to pull a possum into a tree in a suburban backyard on Sunday, October 22, as a Brisbane family watched on in amazement. It might not be the first time the python had entertained the family by taking on prey – the reptile was of a similar size to the one their dog saw before, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. According to Peter McMaster, who recorded this footage, it took the carpet python about 30 minutes to successfully pull the possum into the tree. “I assume the snake is still in the tree as it takes some time for it to digest a large animal like that,” McMaster told Storyful.
