"Meeting the Python Snake and Crocodile Fight"

Imagine, a python snake is able to swallow a crocodile whole in one gulp without any difficulty. The story begins when an Australian citizen named Martin Muller was kayaking in the swamps of Mount Isa in Queensland. While paddling his kayak, Martin saw a python snake and a freshwater crocodile engaged in a fierce fight.

Instead of moving away, Martin was actually curious about the quite terrible sight. He approached the place where the two reptiles were fighting and started busily taking photos of the event.

Even so, he successfully captured the moment when the olive python swallowed the freshwater crocodile whole. The photos of the python's battle against the crocodile were then uploaded on the Facebook page of the nonprofit organization GG Wildlife Rescue.

While its prey, freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus Johnstoni) is also not included in small-sized reptiles. From its snout to the tip of its tail, this Australian freshwater crocodile can grow from 1.2 to 2.7 meters.

The grip of the olive python snake is so strong that even the already short crocodile legs are bent.

The mouth of the olive python snake then opened wide, and slowly swallowed the head of the crocodile.

A few moments later, it appeared that the mouth of the python had already swallowed the entire unfortunate crocodile's head. Now, the mouth of the olive python has reached the stomach of the freshwater crocodile.

"Until finally the olive python reached the unfortunate freshwater crocodile's tail."

The closer it gets to the crocodile's tail, the olive python speeds up the process of swallowing.

Until finally all the freshwater crocodile plants entered the stomach of the olive python. After the snake successfully swallowed the crocodile whole, it immediately crawled away from Martin and returned to the swamp.

"How Olive Python Eats Its Prey"

The following is the translation of the given 'Bahasa' text to 'English' while preserving any html tags: "The olive python has its own way of consuming large prey. Contrary to popular belief, the jaws of the olive python do not actually open together during the process of swallowing its prey. The lower jaw of the olive python moves separately. As a result, its entire mouth can open wide to accommodate the size of its prey."

Unique Movement of Olive Python When Eating

When the prey has entered completely into the mouth, the olive python snake will start performing a movement called pterygoid walk. This movement appears as if the prey is motionless inside the mouth, while the snake's head moves forward to swallow.

"All Digested Except Crocodile Scales and Teeth"

To digest a prey as large as a freshwater crocodile, an olive python requires several months until it is completely digested. All the bones, meat, and organs of the crocodile will be digested. However, sometimes the olive python excretes waste in the form of scales and teeth. These scales and teeth tend to still be intact because they contain a lot of hard keratin and enamel.
