Rumble / Wild WildlifeA hungry carpet python tried to make a meal of a bat in Burleigh Heads, Queensland, on March 27, but the preyed proved too big for it. In a video by local snake catchers, the python can be seen wrapped around the dead bat, and trying in vain to swallow it. “I think this guy’s gonna have a lot of trouble gettin’ that down,” one of the snake catchers says in the video. “Your eyes are bigger than your belly, buddy.” “At the moment, all reptiles are trying to get as much food as they desperately can get before winter comes,” the catcher adds.
