Here are some more still shots from today`s feeding. I fed her outside of her cage to photograph her, it was an interesting experience. I had to manipulate her with the hook at one point and he did not let the mouse go even then. Strong feeding response...

Before:

The fangs:



Head shot:



Spine at the end of her tail: (Acanthophis = spine snake)



Back in the cage:



I also shot a video but it is a bit dark, sorry for the quality.
