In Australia, you never know what surprises you might see right in your own backyard.

If you’re squeamish around snakes, you won’t enjoy this clip.

Want to local python eating a possum in the middle of the day? While dangling from a tree?

In Australia, that can happen.

A python devouring a possum for lunch gave one Queensland man quite the show on Sunday as it dangled from a palm tree over his head with the marsupial in its mouth.
Peter McMaster said he was mowing his lawn at his home in Brisbane’s south when he noticed noises coming from the trees above him.
The father-of-three said he was surprised to see the commotion was coming from a three-metre-long carpet python that had suspended itself from a palm tree in order to grab the possum by its head.

That snake had to work for his dinner. When he finally got to eat it, he had earned it.

The python’s been hanging out in the neighborhood for a month or two. As long as the dogs stay out of his way, that 10-foot snake is doing his part in the neighborhood.

They didn’t even need to call pest control to deal with the possum. Nature had a ‘fix’ of its own.

Get Doug Giles’ book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation today!

If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
