A venomous snake was filmed devouring a 24ft-long iguana on a golf course in just five minutes.

The Golden Tree Snake was filmed swallowing a reptile on the 14th green of The Royal Golf and Country Club, in Bangkok, during daylight, and the footage has been obtained by the Mirror Online.

The venomous snake can be seen crushing its victim with its jaws before devouring its prey, and the footage has astonished staff and regulars at the golf club.

Murray Darling, a corporate managing director who spotted the incident, said: "My golf was bad but I was having a better day than this poor lizard on the 14th green.

"I thought it was a small monitor at first but I think it was more iguana like. The snake had it fully under control.

"The iguana head never came out from the snake's mouth in the five minutes we watched. I was having a horrible round but sunk my only one putt of the day to ensure I got off the green swiftly.

"The snake was going to win. We left and let him enjoy his dinner."
