A snake eating croc is all the rage after photos of the crocodile are making the rounds after the serpent spent five hours taking down its prey on the banks of an Australian lake over the weekend.

A local woman photographed the lengthy battle between the 10-foot snake and the crocodile on Sunday at Lake Moondarra near Mount Isa.

"[The crocodile] was fighting at the start. It was trying to keep its head out of water and survive," Tiffany Corlis told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "But as the morning progressed you could tell both of them were getting a little weaker as the struggle was going on, [and] finally the croc sort of gave in."







The snake strangled the crocodile and then proceeded to drag it onshore to devour it.

"It was just unbelievable," Corlis 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."

"You could see the crocodile in the snake's belly which I think was probably the more remarkable thing," she said. "You could actually see its legs and see its scales and everything, it was just amazing."
