Footage has emerged of a toad chowing down on a massive snake.
The hungry amphibian flipped nature on its head by eating the 3ft-long keelback snake – Australia’s only none poisonous snake.
According to the Daily Mail one of the researchers who found the toad was Darwin’s Lord Mayor, Graeme Sawyer.
I was absolutely amazed. To see a large female cane toad like this one eating a live snake is just unbelievable.Advertisement
I thought I’d try to give the snake a chance so I grabbed it and I was able to pull it from the frog’s mouth before it went any further down its throat.
Miraculously, the snake was still alive, so I released it into nearby bushland.
In an official briefing about the snake the Queensland Government described it as ‘a reptile that eats frogs, tadpoles and lizards’.
