A humongous snake thought to be a python and a crocodile battled it out for five hours in the Australian Outback and the snake ending up eating the croc whole!
Apparently, crocodile was on the menu that day at the Outback Steakhouse, where it was “No rules, just right” for the python.
This event took place at Lake Moondarra near Mount Isa, a remote town in Queensland. As locals watched, the python can be seen strangling and eating the crocodile. The women who caught the fight on video said the crocodile tried to defend itself but was no match for the python.
You can see the outline of the croc inside the snake, even the shape of the legs and the scales., whose outline can then be seen inside the snake. It’s like he was being swallowed whole. Because he was.
It wasn’t easy. It took hours for the python to get it all in there. Here is how the snake wins a fight like this. They go for the neck and shoulder areas in order to avoid the crocodile’s teeth.
A local snake expert said that pythons usually choose smaller prey. But this meal was actually pretty efficient – the snake probably won’t have to eat again for a month. The python will be able to digest all of the croc’s bones, flesh, and organs. The scales and teeth will come back out over the next couple of weeks.
Just look at this and marvel.
