Dinner for Two

One unlucky snake became the center of attention of two hungry American White Ibis as it is caught in the beak of one and wrapped around the beak of the other. 

The two long-curve-beaked birds were captured struggling over their prize on the golf course of the Sara Bay Country Club during a recent tournament. 

So while golfers lined up their putts and swung their clubs, these two birds were going beak-to-beak in a literal tug of war to claim their tasty prize. 

So which bird walked away with the slithering winnings? Well, the bird on the right had to go find another bug to devour, and the ibis on the left went away with a smile on its beak and a snake for a snack.
