Snake Eats Crocodile By Swallowing It Whole


Tiffany Corlis, a local author in Queensland, filmed an epic incident on her mobile phone, as a snake coiled itself around the crocodile while both were in the water and the snake at the crocodile whole.

Some witnesses said it may have been up to five hours of constriction, at which point it was dragged out on to dry land. The photos by Corlis and Marvin Muller are absolutely impressive.

STAY WITH THE SMALLER CRCODILE'S SINCE THE BIG GUYS HAVE THE STRONGEST JAW'S IN NATURE OF AROUND 3500 TO 370 PSI PER SQUARE INCH, WHICH WOULD DEFINATELY CUT A 20 FOOTER IN HALF. NOTHING IN NATURE HAS THE JAW STRENGTH OF A CROCKODILE, AND THEY HAVE 25 FOOTERS IN THAT AREA OF QUEENSLAND.

Sorry Walt, but the croc's do not have much strength when opening it's mouth. Ever notice that when one is caught by humans, the first thing they do is tie down their mouth with simple rope, of course, they wrap the rope more than once, but they use rope, not chains. That's what constrictors do, is first wrap around the head to close the mouth on it's pray to keep it from biting. Then they wrap the body to constrict it's breathing. Even the big croc's go down for the count when wrapped-up by a big constrictor. Many constrictors have 1000lb per sq. foot of squeezing power, some more-ouch!

I saw footage of a S. American river otter eat a baby crock while it was still alive and trying to get free, nature is not for the weak hearted.
