I know Ashish, and I'm not really squeamish. Don't mind spiders etc., just a snake eating, so I guess that's not too bad. All part of the circle and cycle I agree.

wow nice photo!
KarenL, the jaws don't "unhinge" they are just connected by an elastic like material rather than bone like ours.

Spotting of the Day!

"Anacondas are one of the world's longest and most powerful predators. After constricting and asphyxiating large mammals or birds, they swallow them whole."

Amazing spot! It really shows just how far it's jaws unhinge to be able to swallow such large prey.
