These chilling images show a fatal encounter between a 10ft-long python and a crocodile in Australia’s Lake Moondarra, in Queensland.

The reptiles went head to head on Sunday, in front of shocked witnesses.

Local author Tiffany Corlis took photos of the epic battle.

She told ABC North West Queensland Radio: “[The crocodile] was fighting at the start, so it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive.

“But as the morning sort of progressed, you could tell that both of them were getting a little weaker. Finally, the croc sort of gave in and the snake had uncoiled for a little while and had a brief break and then actually started to consume the crocodile.”

Snake expert Associate Professor Bryan Fry, from the University of Queensland’s School of Biological Science, told the Brisbane Times the feast would keep the python sated for about a month.

He said: “The longer it takes to swallow, the longer it is without a means of defending itself. Now it might go and find a hollow in the mud and tuck itself away for a while.”
