“Open wide.”

If you are still recovering from the nightmare that was huntsman spider v pygmy possum, well it may be best to hit the “back” button now.

Australia has produced another gripping encounter from nature, and in typical sequel-style, this one is even bigger and more bloated.

Grisly images from kayaker Martin Muller have been shared on the Facebook group of GG Wildlife Rescue.

The pictures show an olive python gorging on an unfortunate crocodile in swampland near Mount Isa in Queensland.

The snake, which isn’t venomous, is the second largest in Australia and can grow up to four metres in length.

It can be found in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. 

Michelle Jones, who owns GG Wildlife Rescue, a non-profit organisation told Daily Mail Australia that the snake isn’t a fussy eater: “It’s common for them to eat pretty much anything if they can fit it in their mouth.”

The original Facebook post has now been shared over 28,000 times with over 16,000 comments ranging from the shocked: “Why the f… would any sane human being be kayaking in a place where there are snakes that can swallow a crocodile whole?”, to praise: “How lucky to come across that, just amazing! Thanks for sharing”, to the more comedic: “Crikey!! ….. need a Quick Eze after that lunch”.
