I was at a bird sanctuary early one morning and happened to see a Great Blue Heron find and eat a large snake. I was amazed at how quickly the whole the process took place.
I thought it would take a bit of time for the bird to completely consume the snake, so I walked around the top of the shoreline to get a different angle.
It didn’t take me more than two minutes to change positions. In that time the snake was pretty much gone down the heron’s throat.
FOG Sez: I think I’ll stick to a nice crunchy bowl of cereal for breakfast.
