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.

    I was like O_o wtf? when I heard about it. I’ve only seen clips on the tv and am not gonna look at the picture. Dead humans don’t bother me yet dead creatures do.
