Description

I heard something scurrying away into a beargrass then saw a snakes tail quickly disappear. When I moved around, I saw this bull snake coiled around the rat and heard the rat squeak a couple of times. It didn't take long for the snake to slightly loosen its grip. It looked over the body a little (it seemed particularly interested in its ears) then slithered away. It returned shortly after to have lunch.
