What Have you Eaten Now?

About a month ago the neighbours' bunny had been missing for a few days when my Beloved called out to me one morning "I found Donut".
"Is she alive?" I asked. He didn't answer so I came out to see one of the neighborhood pythons very big and full lying in front of our outdoor dunny. The python remained there for two weeks, digesting.

This morning my Beloved called me out again. We think this is a different, smaller python. It is about 6 foot long, not very big. I imagine it has eaten a rat or something as he isn't near as large as the previous one. Maybe a couple of rats?
I think the kookaburras were hassling it, so he slowly made his way into the bush.

I also think he ate something much larger than a rat...do you and your beloved have a dog? a really big DOG! I am a little bit afraid of snakes even though I know they are really our friends. We have a really long black snake in our woods that takes care of the mole overpopulation and chipmunks. Thank you for your kind supportive words... I was dreaming of the rain forests while I was inside the very noisy MRI/MRA tubes for 90 minutes. I stayed calm that way. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

The python who ate the rabbit looked bigger. I hope I am remembering correctly because our neighbor came over this morning asking if I had seen their other bunny!

Pink, not only in our neighborhood, this is our yard! We have many snakes that we live around, several who are poisonous, so I am happy to see the pythons.

Fascinating. I love snakes, i've had a phyton around my neck one day. I thought i was very brave lol. But in my backyard that would scare me a lot.

It is not about courage, it is just where I live.

25 years ago, when I still lived in the States, there were muggers and rapists on the streets. It takes less courage to live with poisonous snakes.
