Dead Snake Found In Florida With 6Ft Alligator In Its Stomach



Python Eats Gator, Stomach Ruptures
Snakes, Gators Compete In Everglades

POSTED: 11:25 am EDT October 5, 2005

MIAMI -- A python's eyes were apparently bigger than its stomach.

Scientists in Florida are puzzling over a Burmese python that scarfed down a six-foot alligator before its stomach ruptured.

They found the carcasses in an isolated part of Florida's Everglades National Park. Photos show the gator's hind legs and tail sticking out of the 13-foot snake's ruptured gut.

The Miami Herald reported that scientists can't figure out how the snake got the critter down. The snake's head is also missing.

Experts say the clash is interesting, but it also shows the exotic snakes are competing with gators to top the food chain in the Everglades.

Park biologist Skip Snow said he's documented 156 python captures in the last two years

I've always liked snakes. They have something mysterious about them.

Of course, this is just a case of gluttony.

I LOVE snakes. I want one.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

I can't even look at a photo of a snake and I get goosebumps just hearing the word snakes

This is the one I want, but they aren't good for inexperienced snake owners, cos they bite a lot as young snakies.

poor thing, my grandma too would faint and have a heart attack if she sees a snake in front of her, A python pretty much would kill her instantly, she just fears these creatures with passion. I just dont think they make good pets, they pretty much eat anything that moves when they are hungry and havent had food in days. My heart tears up whenever I hear cases of freaking pythons swallowing pommies and miniature dogs. It makes me so angry and heart broken.
