UNBELIEVABLE: Python snacks on a magpie

THERE are certain animals that look quite at home in the backyard, but there's no doubt for most people a python is not one of them.

Responding to a call out on Facebook for great pictures of Australian animals by the Stanthorpe Border Post, Steven Raddatz shared a picture of a python swinging from a verandah while munching on a magpie.

Mr Raddatz said he captured the incredible picture in his neighbour's backyard.

"A couple of months prior to this picture they lost there cat, I think I know where it went!" he said.

Despite being quite a large bird, the python seems to be having no trouble turning it into lunch.
