Water Snake Swallowing Catfish

I came across this Water Snake back in June of 2009. I was walking near the Arkansas River here in Arkansas when I saw this large water snake coming through the water, to the bank, with a large catfish in its mouth. Once it saw me, it headed back down into the water with its catch. The current was really strong and the fish was really large, and I knew that the snake would have to resurface and return to the bank to feed. Once it got back to the bank there was an added bonus. There was a second snake attached to the other end of the fish. I watched the two snakes fight over the fish for several minutes until finally the larger snake swallowed it whole.
