    Is it true Claude told the snake he's got "a little something stuck in the corner of his mouth...no the other side."?

    Apparently, the same thing happened in Florida but both were killed.

    That was insane! I'm sure this was a chess
    match - fighting for the first move.

    Either that snake ambushed the croc, or
    the crocodile allowed it self to get
    grabbed first. The snake probably knew
    to secure the crocs mouth FIRST.

    I like how in the last frame of the video
    it shows the snake's face like, "Ahhh..I'm done!"

    Now I have to rid those images from my
    mind before I try to sleep tonight.

      The thing is, the snake ate the croc and will now spend the the next 3 days trying to digest it while being unable to move.

      The next crocodile that spots the snake is going have a very easy meal. He'll probably munch his mate as well.

        Yeah it isn't moving much any time soon.
        A meal that size will keep the snake inactive for up to a month.
        I've had Boas for pets and at one time collected snakes here in New York for a friend studying Herpetology at the University of Miami.
        My Boa would eat a few mouses or a good sized rat and wouldn't move for a week. If you put a mouse in his aquarium during that time, the mouse would eventually think the snake was dead and start to chew on it.
        I've got a feeling a snake big enough to eat a croc, knows where to hide while digesting it

          I was wondering if there may be a chance that the snake could actually die in this case? Digesting a croc must be hard work, a real strain on the system. If what you say is right, then the snake will be fairly inactive for some time to come. He must have been hungry to gobble something that large!

            I'm not sure David.
            Though it would be in a type of a dormant state for some time, I think snakes in the wild where they have predators aren't quite as docile as snakes raised in captivity.
