Taronga Zoo is home to six Australian File Snakes. You may have walked past them in Reptile World but may have not stopped to appreciate how amazing they are. They live in fresh water and their rough scales help them hold fast on to fish that become a meal. Even more fascinating is that they can devour a whole fish in 15 seconds! See the video of them during mealtime here.
