snake vs. alligator


BBC NEWS | Americas | Snake bursts after gobbling gator

An unusual clash between a 6-foot (1.8m) alligator and a 13-foot (3.9m) python has left two of the deadliest predators dead in Florida’s swamps.

I have no idea why I’m posting this…I guess I find it rather interesting. Rather horrifying, but also interesting.

This reminds me of some show I watched once (I think it was something like “when pets attack” or “when animals attack” or something like that). The segment was about an old woman who had called 911 because the neighboor’s cobra, that she was babysitting, was swallowing her little toy poodle whole and she didn’t know what to do! She even took pictures. So the 911 call, on the show, was accompanied by these awful pictures of this poor little doggie being eaten by a cobra. Truly, it was so awful that to this day I am still kind of messed up from watching it. There is something just so terrible about a cobra swallowing thier prey live. And to have it be a poor old woman’s little dog right in front of her.

Yeah, I would say that Cobras are not the best pets. And you definately don’t want them around small children or animals.
