Snake vs Crocodile

The battle, which took place at Lake Moondarra in Australia, was captured by local author Tiffany Corlis. The fight, according to another witness, lasted about 5 hours. After the snake eventually overpowered the croc, it took about 15 minutes to consume its kill. It was widely reported in the media in March 2014.

The photo series below, shot by Tiffany Corlis, shows the battle, which began in the water, moved to the land, and ended with the crocodile residing in the snake’s belly.

Corlis told the BBC, “It was amazing. We saw the snake fighting with the crocodile – it would roll the crocodile around to get a better grip, and coil its body around the crocodile’s legs to hold it tight. The fight began in the water – the crocodile was trying to hold its head out of the water at one time, and the snake was constricting it. After the crocodile had died, the snake uncoiled itself, came around to the front, and started to eat the crocodile, face-first.”

The YouTube video above contains footage of the event, and has amassed over 50 million views since it was first posted.
