Fascinating video: copperhead eating molting cicada

Here is a fascinating video by Kenneth Gisi of a copperhead (Agkistrodon contortrix) eating a molting cicada. Kenneth noticed this just as the snake started to eat the cicada, and his video goes all the way to when it has completely swallowed the cicada. Well worth watching over and over!
