Alligator Attacks Python 04 Dangerous Animals

by ojatro
American Alligators are opportunistic feeders and have been know to prey on the invasive Burmese Python in South Florida. Regardless, killing an adult python is not an easy task even for Florida's top predators. Alligators in general ambush their prey than dragging it into the deep water and drowning it. These killing technic doesn't work alway, in particular if the water level is too low. The burmese python is able to avoid being drowned by keeping its head above the water. Every so often the alligator will try to brake the python's neck by vigorously shaking it. Braking the prey's neck might be an effective method to kill mammals and birds but it certainly won't do much harm to the python in this case. Alligators have no problem crashing the hard shell of turtles but bitting through the tough python skin is a different matter. Nevertheless, the alligator's bite force of 2000 pound per square inch will cause internal injuries on which the constrictor might die eventually. Alligator Attacks Burmese Python was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in Florida in 2013.
