That is one satisfied snake.
Photographers in Queensland, Australia, captured a snake battling a crocodile over the span of five hours, climaxing with the snake swallowing the crocodile whole.
“[The crocodile] was fighting at the start, it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive,” one photographer, Tiffany Corlis, told ABC Australia. “But as the morning progressed you could tell both of them were getting a little weaker as the struggle was going on. Finally the croc sort of gave in.”

The fight happened on the shore of Lake Moondarra, a popular place for Queensland residents to go swimming – though Corlis said she plans to send someone else in first before stepping foot in the water in the future.
“It was just unbelievable,” she said. “We were sort of thinking the snake had bitten off a little more than it could chew, pardon the pun, but it did actually eat the crocodile.”
