Incredible photos show an intense battle between a 29-foot anaconda and a crocodile during a fight to the death in the dark waters of a swamp of the Amazon rainforest.

The scaly anaconda is caught during the attack of the six-meter-long caiman in Pantanal, Brazil, after having found it in the swampy tropical wetlands where both species live.

The anaconda wraps around the caiman and turns the body of the prey while trying to choke to devour it for its next meal.

Wildlife photographer Kevin Dooley, 58, witnessed the intense moment when the snake broke all legs of the caiman before it took revenge and bit the snake.

The photographer said the reptile managed to slip away from the struggle before the caiman finally died.

Dooley, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, said: & I was eating our lunch in a boat when this happened. I couldn't believe it all.

& # 39; I heard all this splashing and when I looked, I saw that the caiman was suffering.

& # 39; The anaconda continued to strangle the caiman. It had even broken all the caiman legs. & # 39;

The nature photographer said he was about 30 meters away from the animals that ate his lunch when he turned & to the right and witnessed a great location. & # 39;

He added: & # 39; It all happened in about eight minutes.

& # 39; I think the anaconda eventually ran out of oxygen and the caiman had to let go.

& # 39; And then the caiman then bit into the snake.

& # 39; But the snake managed to get away and slip away, I think the caiman eventually died. & # 39;

Dooley said that this was a rare opportunity in his photography career and thinks that he & # 39; will wait a long time to see this happen again & # 39 ;.

He added: “I felt very blessed and very happy and a little sad for the caiman.

& # 39; I never thought I would experience anything like this in my life. & # 39;
