    this seems to occurs frequently. i love reading the news and seeing the pix and vids from peeps on their walkabouts and seeing an Olive war and then eat a Croc. they are all horrified and fascinated. anyways this always makes me think about how keepers like John1982, Reinz and El Ziggy get their supply of Crocs to feed their Olive's.

    Thanks for sharing this, Richard. Did you see the claws on that croc? Olive pythons have some kind of awesome digestion, not to mention strength, and some
    mighty stretchy skin to go along with their "can-do" attitude, lol.

    Thanks for posting Richard.

    That newsfeed and FB poster are a bit late to the party though. Iíve had those pics in my photo album since 2015.

    Regardless, itís still cool and interesting to see them again, as well as educating people.

    Please excuse the spelling in my posts. Auto-Correct is my worst enema.

    It is pretty awesome to think a snake can take on something that big and survive

    Awesome share!! Thanks Richard!!

    I never cease to be amazed by how incredible these animals are. There's a reason they've staved off extinction this long without any limbs or other forms of self defense.



    ...and yup, can't beat Crocs in the kitchen. They're the only footwear I can stand to work in.
