Giant Python- Eats Alligator, Explodes

Why wasn't I notified of this earlier?

I just found this awesome story on the world wide internet. Back in October of 2005, some Florida Everglade rangers came upon the gruesome site of a giant python that exploded while trying to eat a six foot long alligator. This happened in Florida- not the Amazon or Africa.

Can you imagine the battle royale that must have taken place previous to the swallowing? Can you? I guess the alligator got the last laugh. What was going through that snake's head- "So full... but..must..eat...entire...gator... feel like I'm going to burst..."

The rangers couldn't find the poor bastard's head either.

Read the sweet article from the Miami Herald.
