QUEENSLAND, Australia, March 22 (UPI) -- A sea snake was able to devour a stonefish as a diver captured video of the face-off between the two deadly creatures.

Facebook user Beau Greaves shared video of the sea snake as it managed to swoop in and swallow the venomous stonefish.

"Got lucky to come across this wile diving! Sea snake eating a stone fish!" Greaves wrote on Facebook.

The video begins with the stonefish already ensnared in the snake's mouth, as it begins to contort itself while trying to swallow the fish whole.

As the struggle continues, the sea snake uses its own body as well as a nearby rock to continue to force the stonefish further down its throat.

Once the fish had been completely swallowed the snake can be swim contently swimming away sporting a large lump from the well earned meal.
