Snake Takes On Croc In Epic Battle Between Predators

Whether you’re a human or an animal, it’s easy to acknowledge that snakes and crocodiles are some of the fiercest, most revered predators in the wild. But what happens when these two beasts come across one another, like they did just days ago in Queensland, Australia?

Absolute carnage.

It all went down off the shores of the popular Lake Moondarra, considered to be a great spot for swimming and water sports, according to the ABC News. The locals weren’t dipping their toes in the water when they found a snake and croc duking it out. But they did capture the epic struggle on camera!

After an exhausting FIVE HOURS, the snake, believed to be a python, came out as the winner by strangling the crocodile to death. All that fighting must have made the snake hungry, because he swallowed the dead croc whole afterward.
