A python bursts after making a meal out of a gator, leaving everyone baffled as to what exactly happened.
Pythons are known for filling their bellies with some pretty enormous animals, including alligators, but this particular alligator was a bad choice.
For whatever reason, the head was also missing from the python when it was found, making this scenario even more strange than it already is.
However this happened, it is definitely one of nature’s mysteries that will remain unknown, and all we can do is theorize a possible explanation for what transpired.
How in the world this came to manifest is unknown, but several theories have been proposed. Some believe the gator clawed its way out, others think it ruptured from the build up of gas produced by the decomposing carcass, or possibly another predator attacked the vulnerable snake while weighed down by its enormous meal.
