We're going to file this one in the "oh-shit-that-just-didn't-happen" bin. Ladies and gents, feast your eyes below on a video showing a goddamn python devouring a goddamn croc!
This once-in-a-lifetime sight happened in Queensland, Australia, further strengthening the idea that the Land Down Under is one country of scary things. According to Tiffany Corlis, who witnessed it all in the flesh, the encounter lasted five long hours. The two animals made a commotion and attracted people, hence the video above and the photo below.

The one-meter-long croc didn't give in easily despite the ten-foot python's size advantage. "(The crocodile) was fighting at the start, it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive," says Corlis. In the end, the python emerged victorious from the water and proceeded to do the next logical thing: Eat the croc!
Damn, the snake practically doubled its size!

The snake started with the croc's head and the meal was over in around 15 minutes. "You could see the crocodile in the snake's belly which I think was probably the more remarkable thing," Corlis adds. Way to creep us out there, miss!
Rest in Peace, Mr. Croc. Say hello to Lolong for us in animal heaven.
