Python eating antelope

Lucky enough to come across this python having a meal in Samburu, Kenya. The snake has its mouth around the head. You can see the python's eye just upper left of the left coil. I seem to recall that the next day it was still there with just the rump sticking out.

I can make out the head of the python over the antelopes head. What a scene to come across. TFS Wiganlad!
