A snake has won a lengthy battle with a crocodile in northern Queensland, wrestling it, constricting it and then finally eating it.
The incident at Lake Moondarra, near Mount Isa, was captured on camera by
local residents on Sunday.
The 10-ft snake, thought to be a python, coiled itself around the crocodile
and the two struggled in the water. The snake later brought the dead crocodile onto land and ate it.

Alyce Rosenthal, told local media that the two creatures fought for about five
hours. By the end, they appeared exhausted, she said.
"It's not something that you see every day," she said.
