A meeting between two of the largest and fiercest predators in the Everglades -- a Burmese python and an American alligator -- ended in a scene as rare as it was bizarre.

The 13-foot-snake and six-foot gator both wound up dead, locked so gruesomely it is hard to make heads, tails or any other body part of either creature.

When the carcasses were found last week in an isolated marsh in Everglades National Park, the gator's tail and hind legs protruded from the ruptured gut of a python -- which had swallowed it whole.

As an added touch of the macabre, the snake's head was missing.

To show what a geek I am, I read the title and thought, "Alligator? I never heard of that language."

Python vs. Alligator


Sounds like the latest low-budget CGI fest from Nu Vision Films and premiering on SciFi Channel.

Wow. Pretty amazing.

Paul: I thought the same thing, EXACTLY! Scary.

Scott: Nasty. Really nasty. I hope it was all fake, and the photographer trained the dogs to play dead. But if not, boy are those dogs dumb!

yeah saw this on another forum.

its cool enough as it is to see a python and alligator duke it out

even cooler that the python actually ate the alligator whole

and even MORESO, the python exploded.

I found the article that describes the pit bull attack:

Fight for Survival

A soldier killed them, not the bull.

This story documents two other python/gator fights, in addition to "the main event":

In Florida, It's Predator Vs. Alien

One fight lasted "an estimated 24 hours"!

When I first saw the story on msn.com, I wasn't sure what to make of it.

The picture itself is pretty gross, but for some reason, I found it strangely funny, too.

It's a pity the snake is ineligible for a Darwin Award. Eating something as dangerous as an alligator and then exploding would qualify a human, that's for sure!

I'm sorry, but when I see "exploding python", all I can think of is Mr. Creosote

Not quite as amazing as a kangaroo...but THIS ONE had an early Thanksgiving turkey.
