This guy.... If you can't tell, it's a porcupine. He's got his Mohawk on.
And this guy, the beneficial rat snake.
Look! A snake. So... it's just a ribbon snake. No, it's more.
Is that two snakes? What are they doing?
Oh my! The ribbon snake is eating the other snake. (Don't know what kind it was.)
Kind of wished I'd had a video camera.
Here it is around that one branch of the pavonia. It tugged and tugged on its meal that was wrapped around the branch to the left.
But eventually the eatee couldn't hold on any more. Even at this point the eatee's tail wiggled.
Here, you can just see the last little tip of the tail sticking out of the ribbon snake's mouth.
Ahh... I can't believe I ate the whole thing. Come on give us a nice hearty belch.
