Snake eats crocodile for breakfast: amazing photos, video

Snake versus crocodile – who would win the contest?

The real life drama was played on the banks of Lake Moondarra on Sunday morning.

Marvin Muller captured the tussle on his camera as the python strangled its prey and then digested it on the edge of the lake.

Local, Les Rayner arrived as the python was thrashing around in the water strangling the crocodile, which he estimated to be about 45 centimetres in length.

He said he watched in awe for over an hour until the python had digested the crocodile and looked “pretty fat”.
