Incredible moment a famished three-metre long python ᴅᴇᴠᴏᴜʀs a cockatoo WHOLE in North Queensland

The extraordinary moment a three-metre long python feasted on a large white cockatoo has been captured in Far North Queensland.

Cairns local Gary Montagner snapped the snake hanging from guttering of his house in Mooroobool as it widened its jaw in order to slowly digest the bird.

“Nature’s circle of life caught on camera!” posted Montagner, who added that nearby squawking cockatoos that can be heard in the background of the video were “distressed” and remained in the trees, too sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ to venture near the reptile.

These amazing pictures show the moments a python captures a sulphur-crested cockatoo, sǫᴜᴇᴇᴢᴇs it slowly to ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ and ᴇᴀᴛs it whole.
