Check out a snake eating an egg here, and a sidewinder snake eating a lizard, and many more snakes, here.

In the mood for some snake crafts? DLTK provides several ideas here.  And if you'd rather do a jigsaw puzzle, try Jig Zone. (Notice that you can change the number of pieces by clicking “Change Cut” on the left of the screen.)
