[O]n Lake Moondarra, near Mount Isa, Australia. The locals are blase enough about the local wildlife to kayak on the lake and breakfast nearby, but even they were stunned when word started to spread of the 5 hour battle. “[The crocodile] was fighting at the start, so it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive,” local Tiffany Corlis told the local ABC radio station.

“Finally, the croc sort of gave in and the snake had uncoiled for a little while and had a brief break and then actually started to consume the crocodile.”

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
