Bronzeback snake and a large tree frog

You might be thinking that the frog is too big for this little dude to swallow, but a snakes jaw is equipped with tendons, muscles and ligaments that give it the extreme flexibility required to get the job done.

An enduring myth about snakes is that they unhinge their jaws to swallow large prey. This is false.

Both lower jaws are capable of doing their own thing, and are connected to the upper jaw/skull by the quadrate bone.

This bone is not rigidly attached and is able to articulate/move freely while keeping everything together, allowing even little snakes like this guy to slay and devour giants.
