Horrifying moment massive snake gives possum a 'kiss of death' while hanging ... trends now
Disturbing footage has emerged of a massive snake dangling a dead possum from the wooden rafters of a roof.
The footage taken on the Gold Coast shows a coastal carpet python stretching from the roof and almost reaching the floor while grabbing onto the dead brushtail possum.
The snake can be seen gripping the possum by the head with its up to 100 teeth, a 'kiss of death', and coiling itself up to pull it into the rafters rafters.
Although the possum would be enough to keep the snake full for about a month, it decided to leave its kill behind after it dropped it on the ground.
The eating process usually includes striking, constricting and eating their prey and if disrupted can lead to them being put off from following through with the kill.

Only mature pythons - which can grow up to 3m-long - are known to attack possums as they require more strength to kill than smaller pythons
