Everybody's Gotta Eat

I guess snakes can eat kangaroos?! Kind of makes me wonder what other animals have ridiculous eating habits. "Contrary to the popular belief that snakes can dislocate their jaws, snakes have a very flexible lower jaw, the two halves of which are not rigidly attached, and numerous other joints in their skull allowing them to open their mouths wide enough to swallow their prey whole, even if it is larger in diameter than the snake itself as snakes do not chew" (Wikipedia). This is nothing short of amazing. Would you say extraordinary?
