A day after a man in far-north Queensland found a python eating a wallaby, comes another only-in-Queensland wildlife story.
N&S Snake Catcher were called to a home in Goodna, a suburb of Ipswich, south of Brisbane, to find an eastern brown snake making a meal of a scrub python.

Snake catchers Sally and Norman Hill, who work in the Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich areas, said they’d never seen the like of it before.
“By the time we got there the snake was still eating the carpet python, we’ve never seen this before ourselves,” Ms Hill told Fairfax Media.
“We hung around for a couple of hours, when you see a snake eating an animal it’s interesting.”
Eastern browns are highly venomous, but their fare is usually restricted to rodents, birds or frogs.
Ms Hill told the Brisbane Times that it took the snake more than three hours to ingest the python.
But the process of getting the snake into the bag was remarkably easy, as the eastern brown slithered right on with little encouragement.
“We just opened the bag up and he went in there himself,” she said.
