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.
“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.

An African rock python attempted eating a porcupine, also a failed attempt.Some species of pythons have been known to grow over 20 feet in length, but the olive python averages in about 13 feet.
It can take five hours for the snake to completely consume a crocodile, according to a 2014 video documenting a similar situation.Because of the snake’s well-known appetite, Facebook users were in shock at Muller’s ability to risk his life to capture the scene.
Be glad God placed the [crocodile] to the python before you arrived on the scene,” one user commented.
