In fact, there are many cases in nature where animals fall victim to snakes and are swallowed by them. Here are some examples of poor animals that met this pitiful fate:
Rats: Rats are one of the main prey of snakes. With the ability to climb trees and run fast, mice can escape the snake’s chase in many cases. However, sometimes they are unfortunately targeted by snakes at the right time and become their meal.
Rabbit: Rabbit is also one of the common prey of snakes. Despite its agility and high jumping ability, rabbits are still not immune to being hunted and swallowed by snakes. Especially large snakes like cobras, they can eat rabbits even when rabbits are in their tunnel system.
Birds: There are many species of birds that become good prey for snakes. Snakes can eat birds by attacking when the bird is sleeping in the nest or perched on a tree branch. Some snakes can even crawl into bird nests and eat eggs and young without attracting the attention of large birds.
Frogs: Many types of snakes hunt frogs as a primary food source. When frogs can’t get rid of the snake, they can be swallowed whole and go on to become part of the snake’s food chain.
Despite the pitiful situations, the fact that an animal is swallowed by a snake is part of nature and the law of survival. Each species has its own role in the ecosystem
