Continuing the spirit of not just creepy but REALLY CREEPY…
This video excerpt below, featured on last week’s Nature (pbs.org) first shows a Burmese python losing its life to an alligator. Then the tables are turned and an alligator is swallowed whole by a python!
Even though initially I was grossed out by this, I reminded myself that these types of predatory feedings occur every day in wildlife and each species needs to find food to survive – which makes it a little more palatable to watch.
The complete video “Invasion of the Giant Pythons” also explains some of the reasons why the Florida Everglades National Park has been overtaken by Burmese pythons.
