PHOTOS: Egret vs. Snake

Palm Harbor Patch reader Jim Olson had his camera ready when an egret snacked on a small snake.

Thanks to Palm Harbor Patch reader Jim Olson, who had his camera handy when he spotted an egret pick up a snake, then eat it.

If you look closely, you'll see the snake tied itself into a knot.

Anyone know why snakes do this?

Is this some sort of survival tactic to avoid being eaten?

Let us know in the comments section below.
