Plant a kiss, Snake are basically 2 things, muscle and bones. What makes the snake moves is that it expands and contracts its muscles a certain way to move. It can move just as fast a small snake can because, it doesn't reall gain fat but muscle. So instead of being fat and grumpy like some humans are, it is a constant "weight lifter" always trying to ad muscle. A snake of that size would have no problem taking an animal out. Also snake are sorta like lions; they sneek up on the prey until it is in striking distance, then it attaks so quickly that the prey doesn't catch on to what's going on until it is to late. Even if did escape, the snake could probably out run it anyway and kill it. Correct me if I'm wrong.
