The python's dinner

The image below is horrifying and rather beautiful. Danish scientists were able to combine CT and MRI scanning techniques to observe a python in the process of eating a rat. The image below shows the python about midway through dinner.

Here is a link to Bonnie Biess's article on Asylum.com explaining the process, and images of the rat at the 2, 16, 24, 32, 48, 72 and 132 hour points in its transition into python molecules.Yes, it makes us queasy. Now imagine an entire cow on its progress through a great many human digestive tracts.
