The Amazing Story of the Crocodile eaten by a Snake in 2014- yes, this large snake actually eats the whole croc! read about this case and other similar stories when a snake ate large animals!
Let’s read about the hungry snake that eats an entire crocodile, and how is this possible.
It’s said that everywhere you go in Australia, you will meet dangerous creatures. However, a resident captured some moments that will demonstrate that even the danger is dangerous for itself. Tiffany Corlis shoot extraordinary pictures of a snake who eats a crocodile. The incredible incident took place on the shore of the lake Moondarra, in the north region of Queensland.
The intriguing fact is that the region is a place where the locals come very often to swim in the lake.
The battle between the two reptiles took about 4 hours. In the beginning, the snake, a Python of 10 feet, battles the crocodile in the water. It wrapped itself around the body of the crocodile and dragged it in the water.
After the crocodile dies through suffocation, the snake is dragging it to the shore. There, it unwraps and begins to eat the crocodile starting with the head.
The witnesses claim that the entire battle was incredible, but more incredible was the ability of the snake to eat such a large reptile.
How is this possible?
You might think that the snake dislocates its mandible to eat such a large animal, but it doesn’t. The truth is the two jaws are independent one of another. They are jointed by an elastic ligament, and not by a rigid symphysis. This allows it to eat animals larger in size such as antelopes, cats, pigs, other snakes or crocodiles.
If a snake of this size can eat a crocodile, we wonder what could eat
The snake ate the entire crocodile in about 15 minutes. It is also said that the snake can sense when the heartbeat of the victim stops. This way, the snake will cease to strangulate the animal and consume energy with no use.
