A snake was seen trying to swallow a long and slimy-looking eel in a video posted by wildlife officials in Georgia.

The video shows a long, dark-colored snake with stripes on its body struggling mightily to consume a lighter-colored eel that looks to be almost the same size. 

The fight between predator and potential prey was posted to Facebook by the Wildlife Resources Division of Georgia's Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
