The panic-stricken resident of Queensland’s Flying Fish Point called a snake catcher after spotting the four metre [13 foot] scrub python narrowly avoid eating his dog last Friday [Feb 8].
The region was recently pounded by a tandem monsoon and heavy floods that carried wayward crocodiles and snakes into human environments.
Confronting snapshots show the serpent’s jaws wrapped around the hapless marsupial, putting the brutality of the animal kingdom on full display.
Snake catcher John Boettcher, 43, said: “When we arrived I thought: ‘wow, that is a massive snake’.It was challenging to relocate it without stressing the snake out so that it doesn’t regurgitate the wallaby.
