The two reptiles began their death-match in the water, where they thrashed about for five hours until the snake had strangled the crocodile. After the snake had killed the crocodile, it moved on land to consume its hard-won meal. Local residents photographed the snake eating crocodile event and provided them to Australian media outlets, the BBC notes.

The snake eating crocodile pictures caused a sensation and quickly went viral online.

Witnesses said the snake took about 15 minutes to eat the crocodile and appeared “very full” after its meal.

The snake was likely a python and was estimated to be about 10 feet in length.
