SNAKES have been snapped dining out, with results that are both amazing and a little gruesome.

The photos were posted to the Facebook page of Lockyer Valley-based Andrew Smedley's snake removal business.

Mr Smedley asked his followers to post photos of snakes eating and the results were slightly disturbing.

One of Mr Smedley's followers shared a photo of a snake that had just eaten a canary, with the "bulge" clearly visible.
