Anyone notice mussie can kill prey like large snakes with jaws alone? I saw one that killed a big viper just by crushing its head and twisting and did it in seconds. Lots of blood. IT did not use constriction or its venom.

I always wonder why do mussie have so many killing methods? THey have the jaws of of an indigo. THeir constriction is stronger than a kings also.


THey eat water cobras or they will try to kill a water cobra bigger than they are. Mussies unlike indigo do not care how big the snake is they will still kill it. It does not always go their way if they attack a boa or something the tables can turn. A snake with so many methods.
