Residents of a house in Western Australia were given a shock after spotting a python vomiting a snake it had eaten whole.
The huge python
A six-metre python has been caught on camera regurgitating another snake after catching and eating it, according to a Dailymail
It was gathered that the snake had swallowed a similar-sized python and was found idling near a residential house inside the Parry Creek Farm Tourist Resort and Caravan Park at Wyndham in Western Australia.
The owner of the resort captured and bagged the python before releasing it close to a watering hole, about six kilometres from the property, on Monday
The resort posted to their Facebook page that they relocate 'these big guys' so they don't eat their chickens.
'We saw he'd had a good feed of something (yes we counted the chooks it wasn't one of them) and safely bagged him,' it said.
'Once he was out of the bag he started to regurgitate, that's when we saw the tail! Thinking it was a black whip snake - WOW were we wrong!
'It all happened very quick and he was off again safe and sound.
'Sadly, he lost his lunch but we hope he grabs something else and the birds get his left overs.'
It is believed snakes vomit up their prey when they are stressed.
Alice Skilton, an employee at the resort, said the owner and Amanda Jongedyk, who took the pictures, had gone to release the snake.
'They realised the python was regurgitated and decided to stay back,' Ms Skilton told Daily Mail Australia.
