The Park continued: “We are moving these big boys, so they don’t eat our chooks [chickens].

As soon as he is out of the bag, he began to regurgitate, then we saw the tail! Thought it was a black whip snake – WOW were we wrong! It all happened very quickly and he was back safe and sound. Unfortunately he lost his lunch, but we hope he picks up something else and the birds are left-overs.”

The images were captured by Wyndham, Western Australia resident Amanda Jongedyk, which they shared with the Park. The incredible photos, which Jongedyk told Fox News, were taken on May 20, have since gone viral, having been shared more than 100 times.
