Alligators have clashed with nonnative pythons before in Everglades National Park. But when a 6-foot gator tangled with a 13-foot python recently, the result wasn’t pretty.
The snake apparently tried to swallow the gator whole — and then exploded. Scientists stumbled upon the gory remains last week.
And here I thought my day was off to a bad start. If you’d like, jump straight to the picture. Nature proves once again that she is not only a harsh mistress, but a pretty comical one as well.
