A big meal takes time to digest

It is 23 days since the Diamond Python captured and swallowed a young Red-necked Wallaby and it is taking some time for this large meal to be digested.

Since the capture the python has stayed in this sheltered corner below the garden bed where the warmth of the sun helps with its digestion.
However having a big meal just before the colder weather of winter requires a longer time for the digestion processes to be completed.
The previous capture in 2013 was in October and the full digestion was completed within two weeks.
