Everglades python tries to eat alligator... and bursts!

Everglades python tries to eat alligator

You may have seen the picture of a python that tried to eat an alligator and ended up split in half with a burst stomach. It's a real picture, as described here. The photo was taken 9/26/05 in Everglades National Park, and the American Alligator was 6', while the Burmese python was 13'.

The what?

Yes, there are indeed gigantic Burmese pythons in that U.S. National Park. It is Florida after all, and that's where all the strange things go to happen. For more, see "Huge, Freed Pet Pythons Invade Florida Everglades-National Geographic" and this NPS report. These pythons can reach 20 feet long. Want to go camping?
