More than a week ago, I came across this strange story of an epic (must be!) battle between two fearsome predators in the Florida swamps.
This unusual clash between two deadly rivals, a 6-foot (1.8m) alligator and a 13-foot (3.9m) Burmese python ended in both of them dead.
The python gained the upper hand in this encounter. It tried to gobble its rival whole but then exploded. The alligator may have clawed at the python's stomach, causing it burst.
The python's remains were found with the alligator's tail protruding from its burst midsection. The python's head was missing. Surreal!
