I saw the first pic and thought “ah, that’s sweet”. Then scrolled down and burst out laughing.

I feel guilty now.

It should be on the "Being told I don't love you anymore" thread as a summary of the entire contents. Although I note there is no evidence of breasticles on the serpent.

It's coz only mammals have breasticles, silly. rolleyes

But Blib is right to question whether that is, indeed, a "fantastic moment". A fantastic photograph, no doubt about it. But the article I found that featured it mentioned that the mouse was "dropped into the viper’s outdoor habitat as a weekly treat by its owner" while the photographer watched and waited, camera at the ready. Maybe fine in Indonesia, but you wouldn't be allowed to do that in the UK (feed a snake live mammals).

Blue Pit Vipers look suitable scary though...

Pictures concealed for the benefit of anyone who wets the bed as a result of exposure to the harsh realities of snakes eating their lunch... tongue out

You've never heard of SWT?

So whilst you agree that the original pictures should not have been added, you've included supplementary pictures which are likely (to some) to be in even more poor taste? confused

Might be best to remove them?

I don't know what SWT means.


Agree, I'd rather not see the images above too.

I am surprised feeding live food to snakes is illegal in the UK. I would think it was part of the exercise. Having said that, if the snake is not eating the dead food you can feed it live food.


This site was eye opening for someone that has never had a need for snake food

If we are questioning the morality behind the photo, I think holding snakes, birds, and even fish captive in small enclosures should not be supported. Both of my grand mothers had birds which were never let out of their cages. It seemed so unnatural.

SWT? You'll have to help me with that. I know of several possible explanations but they are either now-defunct public transport companies or wildlife trusts in counties beginning with 'S'.

As for "you agree that the original pictures should not have been added"? No, that's not what I said. What I said was that Blib was right to question whether it qualified as a "fantastic moment" or not. Because that's a very subjective thing. It's certainly not a "fantastic moment" for the mouse, or for the terminally squeamish. But it certainly seems to be a "fantastic moment" for the snake, and for the photographer, and possibly for people with an interest in reptiles and the mechanism of a Blue Pit Viper's strike. I supported the right of a person who doesn't share my interest in those pictures to hold a contrary opinion to my own. It's such an old fashioned concept, I know. And I'd have a different opinion if it involved pictures of a human fatality too. Which might make me a hypocrite. But I have no issue with basic comprehension of written English. Although "thanks for your concern, etc, etc, yours truly..."

Please tell me that the next image in the series shows the rapidly arriving talons of some bird of prey or other. Pleeeeeeease...

That’s an example of the rare “South American Rodent Eating Dandelion”, isn’t it?

The snake is beautiful.

The mouse was stupid.

I used to have a snake. They are rather wonderful close up. Immediately after sloughing a skin, they are dazzling. Unfortunatly, snakes are not the most intelligent of animals, even compared to this particularly stupid mouse.

Great photo, or at least the first one was. Thanks for posting.
