Too Much Trouble for Lunch?

Maybe this great blue heron has met its match? This gobbleguts of the avian world is having trouble swallowing a banded water snake. The tussle for life and death continued for as long as we watched at Babcock Webb WMA in FL. The problem seems to be that the snake does not want to be eaten and is holding the bird's bill shut! But this illustrates how the heron is willing to eat anything it can swallow.
