    WOW....i know this might upset a few but i thought it was cool! Dunno exactly where this pic was taken but you can see it is an east african gaboon...so i am assuming northen natal/ zulu land, South Africa. their range is very limited here

    Haaahahahaha i think it is amazing...look at the other two looking on....shame

    Well it kinda looks like a stray so the viper was just taking care of a feral problem lol. And WOW is that a fat snake!

    I think the snake needs something to wash that meal down with

    What is really creepy is the way the other cats are *watching*! It's like humans staring at a car wreck -- they just can't help it!

    Haha, I agree Amy, I think the other cats watching is what makes it so funny!

    I just keep hearing a deep scary voice..."Here Kitty Kitty Kitty! Muahahahahaha"

    Interesting to say the least...I bet they have the same probs in Floriday with the Burm population growing down there....and not only cats but dogs too....

    It's pretty neat to see a snake eating a cat, but what's really cool to me is that it's not a python like you'd expect. A gaboon viper eating a cat? That's insane. I bet that snake regretted eating something that size once it was time for it to come out the other end ;)

    you would be surprised at the size of prey these guys can take in the wild.....

    small duiker...monkeys.... lasts them a long time though...

    but my question about this photo is....what happened to the snake? Hope it lived... but most probably got killed! :(

    It might not have been. Maybe whoever took the picture was more of a dog person ;)

    hahaha very funny...

    but seriously large snakes like that are killed here for use in "traditional medicine" by tribe witchdocters known as sangomas. Although gaboons are protected along with african rock python....they still get killed as they are worth quite a bit!

    Or its possible that the snake belonged to the photographer!
    You would think that a wild snake would flee when a human came into the area.

    Hello,

    If the snake does belong to the photographer, there is a good chance that he brought the snake out to bask and feed for free!

    Hmmmm I wonder if he would consider coming over here and taking care of the dratted cat that has decided that the area in the flowerbed directly under my living room window is its toilet?
    I'd even throw in a couple of frozen rats!

    i doubt it belonged to the photographer.... gaboons really don't flee from people...they are known to stay in the same place for days! Quite lazy buggers....there are even stories of people stepping on one and not getting bitten(not that i would try it :p)

    plus i would never feed my snake a dirty old stray cat like that even if it did make a good photo...and was for free...lol

    plus i have heard of other incidents of gaboons taking cats...never seen a photo before though
