I'm sceptical, but I think it's legitimate - eels have very sharp tiny teeth, like course sandpaper - it's certainly possible an eel could do this, especially as a heron tend to swallow hole without 'puncturing' their food.

Apparently...

'You see, snake eels have this hard-pointed tip on the end of their tails that can be used to dig their way out of trouble, should the need present itself.
When they get eaten, they use that to try to burrow out, like in this case.
Whilst they ordinarily spend their lives sitting in the sand at the bottom of the ocean...'
