Photo: Eastern Brown Snake Devours Blue-Tongued Skink
December 8, 2015
An amateur photographer in Chewton, Victoria Australia captured a pretty cool photograph of an eastern brown snake (Pseudonaja textilis) eating a blue-tongued skink (Tiliqua scincoides), called an Eastern blue tongue lizard in Australia.
Diana Domonkos captured this image of an Eastern brown snake eating a blue-tongued skink in her garden in Chewton, Victoria, Australia.
Diana Domonkos was out gardening when she happened on the two reptiles. She was hoping that the blue tongue lizard could have freed itself, but there was no such luck as the Eastern brown snake was making a meal out of the skink.
Domonkos posted the photo on her social media account and received a bunch of comments, mostly from people who really enjoyed seeing the image. Domonkos, however, was saddened to see the blue tongue skink get eaten.
"I was hoping he could be released but no luck. Anyway, I am pretty sure I don't want to be a wildlife photographer anymore."
