so it was definitely an olive? some people were initially saying scrub python, though the belly looks pretty white for an olive. what is the general consensus?

Olive.

(at most could be confused by a water python, but hardly ever a scrub!)

It is most definitely an Olive Python. It is the first time I have ever heard of this species eating Croc's. Water Pythons have a reputation for eating small crocs, so it looks like Olives have now joined their ranks

Regarding the other pic of the Water and the Scrub fighting, that Scrubbie was lucky it was released by the birders. It looked like it did not have long to live. :)
