[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This snake, most probably a Black Tiger Snake, was eating a shingleback lizard in Lincoln National Park, South Australia. This picture was taken in the wild and we sat there about 20 minutes watching her.
Just before the lizard had desapeared totaly, the snake regurgitated it and crept away. The lizard was apparently too big for her.

Hi Pierre, An amazing moment in nature. You'd think the meal would choke the snake. Good close up and clarity especially as the eye i sparkling. TFS. Murray
