Natrix natrix eating a Bufo bufo

Old shot, with my old camera.


Last summer at a visit at Mölle fälad, southern Sweden, I had the huge luck to find this Natrix natrix eating a bufo bufo. The toad was still alive, I dont know if the snake didnt like the toad (they generally dont eat toads) or if i scared him but he let the toad go. The toad seemed pretty fine after that. The liquid at the toad's back is poison from it's glands and also blood from the cuts.


Thanks for looking
