The animal kingdom is full of surprises. Wildlife explorers are lucky enough to witness several interesting incidents occurring in the wild. Luckily, some incidents get captured on camera and go viral online.

Social media is flooded with several such eye-catching videos that will give goosebumps. Predators hunting down prey is quite a common thing in the wild. Even witnessing ferocious fights between animals of different species is also prevalent. However, it is uncommon to see a crocodile attacking a big serpent.

Recently, a video surfaced on social media showing a crocodile trying to feed on a huge python. However, the results at the end are quite surprising.

In the video, the crocodile can be seen opening its killer jaws and grabbing the huge python. While the python struggles and crawls to the river bank, the crocodile seems in no mood to leave its prey. Though the crocodile gets dragged, it doesn't leave it. On the other hand, the python retaliates and coils around the crocodile. The serpent tries to break the crocodile's bone as it does for food or to save itself.

After engaging for a while, the grip of the crocodile loosens. But, instantly it again grabs the neck of the python.  Meanwhile, the python exerts more pressure and bends the crocodile.

At last, the crocodile loosens its grip and the python swiftly moves towards a safer place. While the crocodile continues to gasp, the pythons crawls on a tree.

The video shared on Instagram by Yashfa 9519 has gone viral leaving netizens surprised. The video has amassed over 8.7 million views and liked over 529K times. The comments section is also flooded with notes expressing their shock and scare.
