An anonymous photographer captured the scene, which shows the two in the middle of a battle at Everglades National Park in Homestead.
The Burmese python was caught trying to strangle the crocodile not far from a paved road with people walking on it.
When the photographer discovered this fight, the python was already stuffing the crocodile’s head into its mouth. The crocodile bed seemed unable to defend itself, because at that moment the python was tightly wrapped around the crocodile.
At the same time, the snake managed to circle the thick belly of the crocodile and did everything possible to squeeze it. The python tried to swallow the alligator in its stomach, it took 5 hours for it to fully swallow the crocodile in its stomach.
After swallowing the prey, it is very difficult to move, because the prey is too big for its body, the bed has to stay in place until the body feels lighter.
