Alligator eats Python 02, Time Lapse Speed x1


Alligator eats Python 02, Time Lapse Speed.

They are both formidable predators, sitting at the top of their respective food chains.
But a series of X-ray images has revealed what happens when a Burmese python, one of the largest species of snake in the world, takes on an alligator and manages to swallow it whole.
