The amazing moment that an eel tried to escape from within the stomach of a heron while the bird was still in flight was captured by a photographer.

An amateur nature photographer took a picture of an eel running away from a bird about to eat it while it was still alive.

Sam Davis, 58 years old and hails from Maryland in the United States, captured the amazing incident on camera. In his pictures, it looks like an eel is exploding in the stomach of a great blue heron that just ate it.

On the ocean floor, where it spends most of its time, the snake eel has a hard tip for digging around in the softer sand.

Instead, this eel chose to use the sharp point to free itself from the bird’s digestive system. Unfortunately, the photographs show that the snake eel did not leave the pond alive and could not finish its escape.


Mr. Davis visited the wildlife preserve to photograph foxes, eagles, and other animals. “Anything else that may be interesting.”

When he returned to his house, he understood what he had been looking at.

“At first, I assumed the heron had been bitten on the neck by a snake or eel.”

“After I came home and edited the images, I realized it was an eel coming through his neck.” Mr. Davis stated, “I could see his eyes, and he was still alive.”

“The wildlife refuge stated they’d never seen anything like that.” It’s a morbid photograph.”

Martin Fowlie, an expert with the RSPB, claims that they have seen snake eels trying to burrow out of fish ” to avoid being eaten.”

“But I’ve never seen visuals like this involving a bird before,” he said.

‘I’m shocked the heron is still flying with such a large hole in it. However, I believe the bird will not survive such an injury.”


Incredible work was done with the photographs. The fact that the bird and the ell most certainly offered a decent set of meals for the foxes that were watching is appropriate, and it is the “just desserts” they deserve. How can anyone stand to watch this?

It appears that “sadly,” the eel did not make it, but there is no mention of the bird’s life being cut short in any of the stories. Don’t you think that’s some seriously messed up double standards? It is nearly never the case that there are more predators than prey.
