People don't seem to be quite as scared by snakes these days as they once were, and we're not entirely sure why that might be.

So, we thought we'd do a bit of PR work for the species by showing just how far they'll go to get a good meal under their belt, and hopefully boost their street cred back up in the process.

From cows and crocodiles to golf balls and electric blankets, there's very little a snake won't take on when it's feeling peckish...

MOUNT ISA, AUSTRALIA - MARCH 02: A python swallows the tail of the crocodile at Lake Moondarra near Mount Isa on March 02, 2014 in Queensland, Australia.  A SNAKE fought, wrestled and then ate a crocodile whole following a dramatic five-hour long battle.

The look in those tiny, beady eyes should give you nightmares.

The snake really milked this one for all it was worth.

Paul Rosolie, the man who claimed he was going to get eaten by a snake, then decided last minute it was a terrible, terrible idea.

He had had it with those motherf*cking snakes on that motherf*cking plane. Maybe he even ate them afterwards.
