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. However, this particular alligator was a bad choice.
For whatever reason, the python's head was also missing when it was found, making this scenario even stranger.
However this happened, it's definitely one of nature's mysteries that'll remain unknown, and all we can do is speculate.
How in the world this came to manifest is unknown, but several theories have been proposed. Some believe the gator clawed its way out, while others think it ruptured from the buildup of gas produced by the decomposing carcass. Though, it's also possible another predator attacked the vulnerable snake while being weighed down by its enormous meal.
