The World's Biggest Snakes

Everyone loves a good snake story. 

So it's with no surprise that the biggest snakes are the most popular of all the snakes

It's probably because they seem the most dangerous - and let's face it, these giant snakes are dangerous because they could eat you all in one go!

The massive python in the above picture was apparently found somewhere in Indonesia and measured 30 foot long. That's a huge ass snake!

Seven men to hold this snake!

python zaps itself on an electric fence

This giant man-eater decided to attack an electric fence. That was alive with electricity. The result was never going to be in doubt as the snake got tangled up and basically electrocuted himself to death. 

Look at those teeth! 

That's another reason to be scared of snakes - once one of these bad boys has your leg in his hungry mouth, it's not coming out in a hurry.

 Perhaps the snake was trying to turn himself into an electric eel?

This huge snake was killed by the dam construction workers in Nam Theuan Hinboun (hydro power plant) in Khammuan province, Laos.

One worker supposedly lost life to this monster...but that could be the stuff of myths and legends!

albino python

Here's a massively yellow / albino python running round in someone's apartment. At Animals Eating Animals we have a fond appreciation for albino snakes. Or maybe it's just Britney Spears. Our editor gets confused.

Underwater action
Some journalists are ballsy. Like the guys that got Deep Throat to talk. Others are just insane and will run round underwater taking photos of dudes taking photos of giant snakes. If you ain't paying for the photo session.... you're bait!

Huge Cobra?
I have no idea about the picture above, is it some kind of huge cobra? If it is, I'm sure even the Cobra Commander would be happy with the size of that thing!

Well kanga clearly missed out on boxing lessons and lost the round to this giant olive python. The strength of that python is something to behold.

I have no idea if it got the Kangaroo up to the ledge but whatever, an A for effort Mr Python.

Orca captures a seal from an iceberg

orca eats a baby seal
Help me if you can!
I think this picture of an orca taking a seal and dragging it into the water to drown it and eat came from a tv show fronted by Richard Attenborough. It's not very often (if ever!) that Animals Eating Animals has brought readers (hi Mom!) such a cute picture of an animal about to be eaten in a watery grave!

This photo was apparently the result of   three hour team hunt in which the entire pod or Orca co-operated in order to make giant waves that washed the seal from its ice floe, and then did side swipes with their tail, blew bubbles, rolled the ice floe and then eventually dragged the seal to its death.

These methods were apparently employed as a training exercise for the younger members of the Orca pod but is also to ensure that the seal too exhausted too turn round and attack his attackers back. Cos seals can be big mean bastards too!

The famous Captain Robin Falcon Scott witnessed these hunts over 100 years ago and scientists today think that they may be the most complex team hunts in the natural world. Except for a pack of cougars out on the tiles at your local bar.

Orca don't always win - here's a picture of a baby seal getting away from an Orca attack!
