A Florida photographer snapped an epic shot of a gator eating a snake this week. 

The photos show the snake struggling to survive inside the alligator's mouth!

Despite the snake's valiant effort, the gator did prevail and seemed to enjoy it's afternoon lunch.

A wildlife photographer captured the photos at Circle B Bar Reserve in Polk County Monday.

The park has made headlines before and is known to be the home of several large alligators.
