An 8ft snake devouring a young impala in the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana.
Pythons are able to swallow such large prey thanks to dislocatable jaws rigged with tendons, muscles and ligaments that can stretch to extraordinary lengths.
They first kill their prey by wrapping their bodies around them and crushing them using powerful body muscles.
The images were captured by photographer Fred von Winckelmann, from Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
