English term or phrase:PACK ONE HECK OF A WALLOP
A snake at this size would pack one heck of a wallock. (o cara é australiano)
causar um grande estrago/ tem um alto poder de destruição
Explanation: Foi o que pude deduzir a partir do uso dessa expressão em alguns textos:
"Of course, those of us with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have been watching our fat intake for years. Unfortunately, nobody alerted me to the peril of excess calories. Did you know those fat-free cookies still pack a heck of a wallop? "
"The mortal woman turned and slapped him. "You lying JERK!"
His hand came up and rubbed gently at his stubbled cheek. "Even as a cheerleader, you pack a heck of a wallop, Gabrielle".
Espewro que seja essa a idéia.
