A kayaker spotted a python swallowing an entire crocodile after the snake squeezed it to death in an Australian swamp — a scene straight out of “Jurassic Park.”
The GG Wildlife Rescue in Australia shared the image of the olive python, native to the country, chowing down on the freshwater crocodile. Martin Muller was kayaking near Mount Isa in Queensland when he saw what went down.
Pythons are known for eating everything — from deer that are twice their size to porcupines.
“It’s common for them to eat pretty much anything if they can fit it in their mouth,” said Michelle Jones, GG Wildlife Rescue Inc’s owner, to the Daily Mail Australia.
Pythons have a divided lower jawbone and an elastic ligament that is easily expandable. The snakes are able to get their mouth around their prey while restricting the animal and shoving it inside. Their digestive enzymes take over and convert their food into fuel that lasts for months.
