big goanna in lakefield national park – cape york – far north queensland – australia

we spotted this guy on the side of the road, so we pulled up and i walked towards him. as i got closer, i realised that he was eating something. that something turned out to be a damn big snake, so i proceeded to take about 100 pics of this goanna devouring a snake not much smaller than him. from pretty much the start of the meal, all the way to the end. i managed to get quite close, but the closer i got, the faster he ate his prize, and never for one moment did he take his eyes off me!

this shot was taken just after he finished his meal!
