Python Swallows Crocodile Whole in Australia

Meanwhile, in Australia, the eternal battle between snake and crocodile continues…

These amazing photos show an olive python (Liasis olivaceus) devouring an Australian freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni).

The photos have become an instant sensation after being shared on social media. They come courtesy GG Wildlife Rescue Inc., a nonprofit in Australia, which shared them on its Facebook page on May 31.

These pictures were taken by Martin Muller while kayaking near Mt. Isa, Queensland, Australia.

The snake must have felt quite full after swallowing the croc whole:
