Never give up!

lizard tries to escape snake

It's curtains for this lizard that's been nearly eaten whole by this King snake!

Well, at least this alligator lizard doesn't think so and is making one last effort for freedom by biting the snake back!

We wonder how long the lizard held out and if he was able to sink any teeth into the skin of the snake. It would be amusing for the snake if he couldn't finish his meal due this last ditch escape effort!

Hold up, I actually found some comment by the photographer on what actually happened:

P.S. I watched the lizard for quite some time, and as I walked away, the kingsnake began slowly withdrawing from its prey. Just goes to show, if you refuse to accept that you've been beaten, you just might be able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Literally."
