A CNN crew caught a crazy encounter on video recently.

While in Akagera National Park in Rwanda, the crew captured a three meter long python trapping a young crocodile in its coils.

They say the snake held its pretty for over two hours before it was satisfied that the croc had been subdued.

The snake then tried several times to devour the croc, finally succeeding on its third try.

It only took about 20 minutes for the snake to consume the entire croc before it slithered off.

Park rangers told the CNN crew the snake wouldn’t have to eat for another four months.
