Snake choking on invasive fish the size of its head saved by scientist


A herpetologist in France has captured a remarkable photo of a snake choking as it attempted to eat a fish the size of its own head.

While many snake species eat fish — and many can open their jaws wide enough to gulp down large prey — the fish species in this case was invasive in this part of Europe. The scientist who spotted it says that the encounter should prompt more research into the relationship between fish-eating snakes and invasive species.
