This Snake Was Hungry… for Crocodile

Would you have closed in for a photo like these onlookers?

Visitors at Lake Moondarra in Queensland, Australia noticed a struggle in the swamp, and began snapping photos during what ended up being a nearly four-hour struggle between the two humongous reptiles.

Two onlookers, Marvin Muller and Tiffany Corlis got close enough to grab some images, which were shared on BBC News and ABC NW Queensland.

A video was later uploaded, which juxtaposes the photos with some video footage they were able to obtain of the snake swallowing its prey.

Check out scenes from the battle below, and watch as the snake slowly devours the croc.
