Turtle Power! Turtle kills and eats a rattlesnake

Wednesday, July 27, 2016
This almost a terrifying picture when you realise just how dangerous turtles can be ! This one has managed to kill and eat a rattlesnake. Through a fence! Cowabunga!

Rattlesnake eaten by a turtle

I thought turtles only ate pizza? Look at the eyes of that snake eating turtle - he's seen things, been places you and I could never fathom. To him, this snake is just a snakey snack. To us, it's a glimpse into the heart of darkness.

Cowabunga indeed.

Crocodile catches two fish at once in its jaws

Crocodile catches two fish at once in its jaws

This photo of a crocodile snacking on a fish won second place in the National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest. Taken by Massimiliano Bencivenni he said "Picture taken in the Brazilian Pantanal... when I downloaded the CF did not want to believe it .... The nature knows we always give magnificent events but sometimes extraordinary"

If you missed, the magic of this photo is that the crocodile has managed to catch two fish in his mouth at once. Which given how speedy fish can be, that's a fairly impressive move for the predator.

So we're doing spiders eating fish now

fish being eaten by a spider

We spied these pictures and thought they were pretty amazing. We knew spiders could catch and eat birds, and if that act wasn't impressive enough, here's spiders catching fish for their supper. We have no idea how a fish manages to get themselves into positions that a spider can catch them, let alone ponder the mystery of how a spider ever thought to catch a fish in the first place!

You can maybe imagine how the conversation went. "Hey Bob, I'm sick of catching and eating flies and moths in my web. You wanna go fishing this weekend? We could take the ute, have some beers, should be a great lark and who know's maybe we will actually catch some fish too!"
