Crested Serpent Eagle attacks a python snake

Eagles must have the biggest balls of them all, especially this Crested Serpent eagle who has attacked this python because to him, the snake is simply lunch.

python caught  by eagle talons

I've heard that an Eagle's talon grip has been measured at 400 PSI, given your hand can do around 20, that eagle has some serious grip on the python. The pain and crushing blow of that landing, coupled with the powerful grip means that snake probably doesn't have much of a chance of making it to his next meal.

I guess it an eagle has earned the title of Crested 'Serpent' Eagle, it knows what it's doing.
