Mother nature holds a lot of mysteries that oftentimes leaves us dropping our jaws in awe. How the living creatures observe the food chain to maintain the balance in nature is one of the wonders we witness every day in the wild.
Unlike us people who only need money in order to feed, animals have a very different way on how they can fill their stomach. Animals use strength to ꜰɪɢʜᴛ other animals so they can have something to eat. The stronger ᴅᴇᴠᴏᴜʀs the weak who end up becoming the ᴘʀᴇʏ.
When it comes to catching a meal, we would normally root for the bigger animal and it is obvious why. But like David ᴅᴇꜰᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ Goliath with his wit, this bat is never ɢɪᴠɪɴɢ ᴜᴘ ᴏɴ ʜɪs ʟɪꜰᴇ, and he had a smart strategy on how he can make his ꜰɪɢʜᴛ to sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ from a python even.
In a video taken by Redland’s Snake Catcher, Tony Morrison captured the moment a huge carpet python was caught pulling a bat up a tree in Brisbane.
The bat is trapped in the carpet python’s grasp for half an hour as the pair ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ it out. After the bat was sᴛʀᴀɴɢʟᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ, the snake appeared to be sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟɪɴɢ with its meal. With it’s sharp talons and pointed wings, the python couldn’t quite work out how to get it’s head around the bat.
Tony Morrison said: “This snake could not get past the wings of the bat and decided to give up.”
Mr Morrison added that it was common to find carpet python in the area and they are not a ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴛ to humans. Carpet pythons are often found in trees and shrubs but also move around in open areas, like the forest floor or on rock faces. The average size of an adult is roughly 6.6ft but the creatures can grow to 13ft in length.
