While visiting Tim Tams, Australia, songwriter Tim Rice snapped a photo of a bat catching a snake, which was catching a mouse, in turn was catching a guano moth (which fed on bat faeces). Upon reflecting on the photo, he started writing a song called the ‘sphere of death’. Later when Elton John found the lyrics morbid, the lyrics where changed to the “Circle of Life”, and put a more positive spin on the experience.
