Jungle Superbouts Round One = Draw

I've always had a thing with trying to guess who would win in fights between two ferocious animals. Shark vs. Crocodile. Bear vs. Shark. Giant Snake vs. Alligator

Well, we found our answer to the last one. In the Everglades, a 13-foot long Burmese python and a six-foot alligator battled. We can only guess how the fight went down in the first rounds, but the snake seemed to win as it devoured the alligator. Then came the aftermath.

What happened was the snake attempted to swallow the alligator whole, and then exploded. The article says the alligator may have tried to claw at the snake's stomach from inside, leading to the blow up. That's amazing.

You can barely tell where one ends and the other begins. That's weird. The thought of being eaten alive by a snake is not a very pleasant thought. It's sort of like the bad movie "Anaconda" when Jon Voight and others are eaten by the giant snakes. It's not a nice way to go.

I found a video. It provides some explaining.
