Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Gregory Tan

A green oriental whip snake was found, hanging on a tree, engulfing a lizard. Half of the lizard has been sucked into the depths of the snake, meeting nothing but destruction which is yet to come. The snake, using it's powerful muscles, wraps its mouth around the lizard, the reward he got after a long day of searching for food.

Location: Pulau Tioman, Malaysia
