A viral video has captured an epic tussle between a snake and a large catfish in the shallows of the Colorado River.
The Blotched water snake took on the fish despite it appearing far too big for the serpent to swallow.
Before the start of the video Bruce and his party of fishermen had pulled up on the shore of the river to film the fight.
The cameraman then said: ‘That’s a catfish in his mouth I don’t know why he thinks he is going to eat that but holy cr**!’
We came across this blotched water snake trying to eat a catfish much larger than he could possibly swallow on the bank of the Colorado River near Bastrop, Texas.
