Amazing pictures of a fight to the death between a snake and a crocodile in Australia have emerged.

The pictures were captured by local author Tiffany Corlis at Lake Moondarra, near Mount Isa, in Queensland, according to the Courier Mail.

The 10ft snake - thought to be a python - wrapped itself around the crocodile, and the animals battled for around half an hour, before the snake managed to strangle the croc and drag it on land to swallow whole.

Mrs Corlis told the BBC that it took the snake around 15 minutes to eat the crocodile.

She said: "It was amazing. We saw the snake fighting with the crocodile - it would roll the crocodile around to get a better grip, and coil its body around the crocodile's legs to hold it tight."

"The fight began in the water - the crocodile was trying to hold its head out of the water at one time, and the snake was constricting it."

"After the crocodile had died, the snake uncoiled itself, came around to the front, and started to eat the crocodile, face-first."
