These incredible photos show a python sᴡᴀʟʟᴏᴡɪɴɢ a large crocodile whole after ᴀssᴀᴜʟᴛing it in an Australian swamp.
A kayaker who stumbled upon the ghastly sight in Queensland caught the jaw-dropping spectacle.
The python had unfastened its mouth after ᴄʀᴜsʜɪɴɢ the reptile to d.e.a.t.h with its powerful frame in order to consume its meal.
The olive python, Australia’s second-largest snake, methodically devours the crocodile, which is barely visible by its tail, before crawling away.
Martin Muller sent the photos to GG Wildlife Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇ, who shared them on their Facebook page. “Amazing photos of an olive python, Australia’s second-largest snake, feeding on an Australian freshwater crocodile,” stated the post.
“Wow, incredible nature; I adore both of these critters and understand their desire for food.” “It’s usual for them to consume pretty much anything if they can fit it in their mouth,” Michelle Jones, the non-profit organization’s owner, told Daily Mail Australia.
She went on to say that the pythons’ jaws might unhinge when they try to consume the crocodiles. The amazing images elicited a significant response on Facebook, with 15,000 individuals commenting.
One commenter said: “That’s incredible, isn’t it???? You wouldn’t imagine a python could eat such a freshie.” Another was added: “A crocodile was devoured by a snake? What type of messed-up country is Australia?”
