Though I'm not partial to seeing 'cute' animals being killed and eaten, it is important to remember that the ecosystem can not be changed due to what we humans like or dislike.

The Ecosystem at Work
Very informative and educational – Enjoyed the well shot video and I’m in total agreement with the comment, within the reviews, of the value of reptiles to our ecosystem, but with an understanding to rodent lovers.

Corn snakes have to eat, too
Very well shot film of a corn snake (aka rat snake) getting a meal. I own three snakes, including a slightly over 4 ft long corn snake.
As for the person who claims to own a rat and had to include an inappropriate comment in his review, nobody says he has to feed his pet to a snake. While he may not like it, if it were not for snakes and other predators, the planet would be overrun with rodents. Everything has its place in the ecosystem.

The whole enchilada
A typical nature documentary will show only clips or timelapse of a snake eating prey. This movie is valuable because it shows the entire process in real time, providing the viewer with an excellent sense of the timescale required for the different steps of consumption. No sound; camera work is resonably steady. Recommended for kids who may be studying reptiles in school!
