The WWE needs to sign this alligator to a contract ASAP.
There’s no way that this alligator hasn’t been watching film, because it brought out this deadly body slam for the finishing move. This video (I say this every time, but this time I mean it) is the craziest “animal in the wild” clip I have ever seen.
A Florida woman (of course it was in Florida) captured this wild video, which starts with the alligator already having a fair share of control in the fight. The funny thing is that, like a professional wrestler, it seems like the alligator knows the camera is rolling, and decided to flare things up a bit.
The pre-historic creature holds the massive python in its mouth, re-positions it to add suspense and prepare for the move, then finishes off the 6 ft+ snake with a body slam.
Is it still a body slam? Do snakes have bodies? Maybe we’ll just call it a “snake slam” to be safe.
Alligators are usually known for a move called the “death roll,” where they bite their prey and roll their body to dismember and break it down. It looks like the snake might’ve already gone through that move, and just when the slithery python was on the ropes, the alligator pulled out the new move.
3, 2, 1… DING DING DING!
Hold up the alligator’s tiny, disproportionate arm, it is the undisputed champion of the “2023 Snake Slam.”
What does the alligator win? A nice, waterfront feast, which just happens to be the competitor that was body slammed to death.
Looks like a classic case of “eyes are too big for your stomach” as the alligator tries to chow down on the python in the back half of the video. The gator was trying to slurp the thing down like a spaghetti noodle, but just like a order of blazing hot chicken wings, it was not going down easy.
I’m sure the alligator eventually dragged the python off to wherever it calls home. The trip back dragging the massive python says two things to all creatures that witness it:
-I’ve got my To-Go order that I’ll be munching on for the next couple of days.
-See what I did to this monster python? You could be next. Don’t mess with me.
Score this one for the alligator, but this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a big ol’ gator tangle with a monster python…
Sometimes… the python wins.
Burmese Python Easily Swallows Alligator In Florida
If this doesn’t make you afraid of pythons, I don’t know what will.
There’s a lot of animals out there, all are very interesting, there are many that I definitely don’t want close encounters with, then there’s the python.
I would go to great lengths to avoid one of these beasts. They literally squeeze the life out of their prey, wrapping their long armless body around animals and increase the pressure until they suffocate.
These massive snakes average between 6 and 9 feet in Florida, but can grow much longer, especially around the world. One in Florida was recorded at a whopping 18-foot and 215-pounds, the largest ever in the state.
Pythons are not natural in Florida, however. They are considered invasive, meaning they out-compete naturally occurring species. They are such a large problem that they have actually killed a ton of wildlife in the areas they reside, and have no natural predators.
And in the Everglades, where you can find them now, they have built quite the population.
They will eat nearly anything, much like a gator. Except inside of having a hard bite, they have the ability to displace their jaw and fit their whole mouth around their kill.
Watching this happen is almost unbelievable.
This python shows us how dangerous they are as he squeezes the life out of an alligator in Florida. The gator is not particularly large, but it is still a gator. The snake then proceeds to swallow the gator whole.
When I think of eating an animal whole, not that I would ever do it, I would guess an alligator would be tough to do so with its tough skin. Something with fur might be a little bit easier going down. This snake is hungry though and couldn’t care less… this meal will hold it over for quite some time.
It displaces its mouth and fits it around the whole alligator, eventually getting the whole thing inside of itself. The crazy thing is, it does it with ease.
I’ll be the first to say, gator tastes pretty good, but this is downright crazy.
