Animals eating Animals

Nature at its finest can be a thing of beauty. Here's pictures of the carnage that results.

This tiger snake was too slow for this Heath Monitor

Taken by Australian Department of Parks and Wildlife officer Janine Liddelow, this picture shows a Heath Monitor snacking on a tiger snake. Impressive effort that.

The photo was taken in late 2015 near Walpole.

Dog catches a rabbit in the middle of a rugby match

There was a pitch invader at the Okato Domain when Coastal and Inglewood rugby teams played each other.

Stuff reports:

"Having already been threatened with a pair of size 10 boots earlier in the game, the unnamed canine looked to have disappeared through the hedge and out of trouble as the match progressed.

He wasn't gone for long. A few lineouts and a couple of scrums later the hound was back with a score of its own - a rabbit."

The dog eventually dropped the animal and it was quickly euthanized by a spectator.

"The battle might have been lost but the dog won the war, emerging five minutes later with the rabbit in its mouth before racing under a parked ute for a good feed."

Petrel eats the eye out of a dead seal and then puts his whole head in the socket...

Who knew that the Southern Giant Petrel was so into offal? This picture of such a bird putting his whole head into the eye of a dead seal caused quite the stir on reddit:

This picture was taken by one Natlie Tapson, she's put a few more of this odd feeding time here. Well we say it's odd but that's onaly because we haven't seen this combination before. It's actually a perfectly natural thing to occur - nature is always cleaning up after itself.

The 'I'm still alive' Bird

This is just creepy. This harrier bird has totally dominated what looks like a seagull and appears to have eaten his neck feathers and skin off. This left the bird looking rather odd....

Did you want to take a trip to 'Lake Nope'?

We've seen a few clever snakes lately, here's another:

It's possibly from the same photo set as this occasion, either way, not sure I want to swim where these critters hunt!

Would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?

Here's one caribou deer that might be regretting doing such a thing as offering their throat to the wolf - nothing left to see here but a hindquarter leg in a pair of jaws.

Just a picture of a cow eating a rabbit

Cow eating a rabbit

This picture is possibly one of the most unexpected we've posted before. It's a cow of some kind eating a rabbit. How did this comic situation come about? Did the cow sneak up on the rabbit and stomp it with a hoof? Or did it find it dead and get curious as to what rabbit fur tastes like?

Spider eating a flying dragon

You've got to wonder how this happened....

Spider eating a flying dragon

This dragon fly looks like he flew too close to the sun and ended up in the jaws of this spider. 

A snake taking fishing to a new level

We've had a snake catching a fish before, but this picture is simply cooler:

It seems to be a cat fish that has fallen prey to the snake. No source for this picture so no details on the scenario involved.
