Discovering insane things in the Australian wilds isn”t unusual by any means. Actually, the land down below is full of all kinds of terrifying and killer creatures. Spider, snakes, scorpions…you name it, since they’ve it all.
What makes Australia more terrifying is frequently frightening and fatal wildlife comes into contact with people.
Park ranger Paul ONeill at the Nitmiluk national park in Australia”s Northern Territory stumbled across this ghastly sight. A big 8-foot-long olive python was feeding on an “agile wallaby” joey.
The agile is among the very most common wallaby species seen in Australia. Adult wallabies are often about 2.5 feet long. Youthful wallabies (“joeys”) are pretty big, but this one was no match for the python.
The olive python can grow up to 13 feet in length. It’s the 2nd biggest snake species in Australia.
When O”Neil came across the python, it’d already fought and killed the wallaby joey. The snake was most likely lying in wait for the joey on one of his trails through the woods.
