Snake tries to eat catfish in Withlacoochee River

Eric Ferguson said he grew up along the swamps of the Withlacoochee River, but never saw anything like this before. 
Photos he took of a snake trying to eat a catfish twice its size are impressive. 
Ferguson said he was in a boat and saw it happening, but the snake was struggling to manage its meal. 
When he came back a while later, the snake was gone, but the catfish was still there. 
The snake appears to be a water moccasin, but the photos were sent to FWC officials for confirmation.
