Disturbing images of a massive python strangling and consuming a wallaby whole have emerged.
Bernie Worsford came upon the python feeding in Kuranda, in Far North Queensland, and whipped out his camera as it slowly swallowed the helpless marsupial, 7 News reported.
The python can be seen wrapping its scaly body around the wallaby - forcibly squeezing the last bit of air from its lungs - as a horse stands over it and watches on, Daily Mail reports.
A close-up image shows the python's unlocked jaw wrap over its prey's body while its paws poke out the snake's mouth.
A final photograph revealed the python's enlarged body after consuming the entirety of the marsupial.
The python appeared to be metres long.
7 News readers speculated the prey was in fact a kangaroo or kangaroo joey, rather than a wallaby.
One joked: "The Wallabies can't win anything."
