That’s literally what you call scarfing your food down.
A python swallowing an 8-foot alligator whole hardly seems possible, never mind easy. But a University of Alabama professor says that the Burmese Python, like the one in this video, can digest an alligator easier than it can much smaller prey.
“We found that the snakes actually expended less energy digesting alligators compared to digesting rats or pigeons,” said University of Alabama professor Stephen Secor, adding that the Python is able to digest prey that may exceed half of its own body mass.
Considering the Burmese Python can grow to lengths of 22 feet, that’s some serious eating.
