VIDEO: Python And Crocodile Fight It Out For Five Hours In A Freshwater Lake

Because the idea of Australia isn't scary enough already.

Australia is home to some of the world’s deadliest animals: crocodiles, sharks, spiders and box jellyfish. They even found baby crocodiles in a public pool once. Really.

It seems like somehow Australians are unfazed by all of this. Take Tiffany Corlis for example, she captured a five-hour battle between a python and a crocodile in a nearby freshwater lake.

The water python strangled the crocodile and then stretched wide enough so the outline of the crocodile could be seen from outside the snake.

Apparently watching the whole scene hasn’t deterred Corlis from swimming in the snake and croc infested lake in the future. “I think I’ll just send someone else in first,” she told ABC Australia.
