Snake vs crocodile: A dramatic showdown

A Mount Isa resident captured a dramatic showdown between a snake and a crocodile at Lake Moondarra over the weekend.

Snake versus crocodile, March 2, 2014 Tiffany Corlis took several pictures on her smart phone of the snake and crocodile wrestling to death. She says the crocodile put up a fight, but was no match for the snake. “(The crocodile) was fighting at the start, it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive. But as the morning progressed you could tell both of them were getting a little weaker as the struggle was going on, finally the croc sort of gave in.” (Contributed : Tiffany Corlis)

Ms Corlis says the scuffle attracted a lot of attention, with several people taking pictures on their smart phones.

She says everyone got quite close to the action.

“We were probably a little too brave, a little too crazy,” she said.

She says the sight became even more interesting once the snake had finished eating.

“You could see the crocodile in the snake’s belly which I think was probably the more remarkable thing,” she said.

“You could actually see its legs and see its scales and everything, it was just amazing.”

Ms Corlis says the incident has not discouraged her from swimming at Lake Moondarra in the future.

“I think I’ll just send someone else in first.”
