Boa constrictor preying on a roadside hawk (Buteo magnirostris)

You might think the gift of flight would exclude an astute aerial hunter from predation by a slithering terrestrial being with no arms or legs.

The boa constrictor in this series defenestrates that notion, slowly walking the hawk down its throat and erasing it from existence.

Boas are non-venomous; their victims get treated to a violent sleep via constriction (its in the name) and are promptly guzzled down.

They will (obviously) eat anything they can catch, and it serves them well: some snakes of this species can grow up to 13 feet long and weigh up to 100lbs.
