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.
