Typically when we hear about an encounter between an insect and a snake, we’d assume it was the snake that came out victorious. That’s not the case with this water bug that’s as vicious as it is massive.

The fight is caught by onlookers – one of whom apparently knows everything about insects – after it’s already started and the water bug mostly dominates and controls the fight the entire time. It eventually kills the snake and drags it to the depths of the water to its doom so it can feast on it in private.
