COOCHIEMUDLO Island resident Lisa Hodgson has captured video of a carpet python eating a bird while hanging from a gutter.
Ms Hodgson said snakes were quite a common sight on the roof of her neighbour’s house.
They seemed to be attracted to the birds that drank water from the gutter.
Ms Hodgson said the snake was eating a rainbow lorikeet.
“It was hanging from the gutter for about an hour,” she said.
“It was seemed to be using gravity to help it digest the bird.”
Ms Hodgson said after an hour, the python slithered onto the roof.
