    Incredible photos from Australia show olive python swallowing a crocodile
    BY EARTH TOUCH NEWS JULY 05 2019

    We've seen pythons gobble down everything from kangaroos to possums and even porcupines (although that can end badly), but the latest sighting is a reptilian showdown of epic proportions. Kayaker Martin Muller was exploring the swamps of Mount Isa in Queensland recently when he captured this remarkable set of images of an olive python (Liasis olivaceus) devouring an Australian freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni). GG Wildlife Rescue Inc uploaded the photos on their Facebook page last month and they have since been shared over 37,000 times.
