Like a snake manages to swallow the whole pig?

Unlike many other animals, snakes are not able to chew (or even explode) food before its "use"and therefore are forced to swallow their prey whole. For this, nature has given them the ability swallowing large prey much to stretch the oral cavity. And this ability is provided by the connection of the bones of the facial part of the skull, not on a "hinge" scheme, as in most animals and humans, and using elastic cords.

Here is how widely can stretch the mouth of the snake! Snake swallowing a rat whole
