Carpet snake busts a move to devour water dragon

A TWEED resident snapped this 3m carpet snake with a problem, its bitten off more than it can chew and is about to lose its grip on the thin branch.

Meanwhile its victim, a water dragon hangs with its hind feet protruding.

The snake solved the problem by twisting its body around itself, working its way up and crushing and redistributing the bulk of his dinner till its position was secure.
