In between all of the fuzzy animals doing adorable things, like goats riding on ponies and hippos befriending tortoises, the animal kingdom is downright ruthless. While Fiona the premature hippo is out being cute as can be, there are animals who wholly devour their prey in one bite. Yes, that's right, animals eating their victims in one big nasty gulp.
Snakes are the OG of swallowing their prey whole (Kaa from the Jungle Book, anyone?), but there are plenty of other surprising animals that can eat things in one bite. It's probably a good idea not to be eating yourself while learning about these quick eaters.
