The Queensland, Australia-based water python was caught on camera choking the life out of its prey for 5 hours and then undertaking the 15-minute ordeal of swallowing it.
"After the crocodile had died, the snake uncoiled itself, came around to the front, and started to eat the crocodile, face-first," she added.
The very full snake will continue to bloat for a few days as it digests the croc, a process that takes about 3 weeks.
But why go after such dangerous prey, rather than feasting on rats, ducks, and wallabies? Even though crocodiles are riskier to eat, devouring one means a snake this size won't have to eat again for 2 months.
In case it makes you feel better, a water python won't try to eat a human. Our shoulders are generally too broad.
