Dinner for one.....

A beautiful marked Night Adder (Causus rhombeatus) feeding on
a small Rain frog or Sand toad.
Rain frogs are able to blow themselves up and look agressive,
as well as deflate for squeezing into their underground burrows.
Once the snake toxin took effect on the frog it was able to
consume it in a few minutes.
