    How a Burmese python digests a meal

    Found this cool article showing daily X-rays of an alligator being digested by a Burmese python. There's also a video of the python eating the alligator.

    I originally found it here in short form if you don't want to read all that. This just shows the daily X-rays and explains them.

    Loved seeing those x-rays. Thanks!
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Super cool. Thanks for sharing. I saw a similar study on that "Man Eating Snake" documentary. Amazing how efficient these animals are.
