A MOUNT ISA resident has captured a dramatic showdown between a snake and a crocodile at Lake Moondarra over the weekend.

Tiffany Corlis took several pictures on her smart phone of the snake and crocodile wrestling to death, the ABC reports.

She says the crocodile put up a fight, but was no match for the snake.

"(The crocodile) was fighting at the start, it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive. But as the morning progressed you could tell both of them were getting a little weaker and the struggle was going on, finally the croc sort of gave in."

Ms Corlis says she was shocked when the snake began to eat the crocodile.

"It was just unbelievable, we were sort of thinking the snake had bitten off a little more than it could chew, pardon the pun, but it did actually eat the crocodile."
