    Australia: Snake eats crocodile after battle


    The incident at Lake Moondarra, near Mount Isa, was captured on camera by local residents on Sunday.

    The 10-ft snake, thought to be a python, coiled itself around the crocodile and the two struggled in the water.

    The snake later brought the dead crocodile onto land and ate it.

    There was a video on youtube of a snake eating a crocodile, problem is, eating the croc caused the snake to burst.

    And to think that there are untold numbers of Pythons inhabiting the Everglades right now. Ought to be shoot to kill on first sight of any Python there.

    The problem is most people just don't see them. You really have to be searching for them to find them.

    Or them searching for you. Of course, that's probably too late.

    IIRC the croc in its struggle to escape while being consumed used its legs to rip the snake open. Both died from the battle.

    I've got a video of a Squatch eating a python, who's eating a croc, who's eating a wolverine, who's eating a black mamba, who's eating a brown recluse. It's an amazing video that I'd love to post here, but both the wolverine and black mamba use foul language and the Squatch is naked. I'm sure you could find it if you only Googled it.

    That's insane.

    And they definately should just shoot the ones they come across in the Glades. There is no reason to even be jacking with snakes that large and hoping they don't come back around.
