Why did that Alligator not bite down?? Do you think the burm would survive the puncture wounds ok (if there were any?)??

Correct me if this is bull plop, but I thought alligators attack prey by grabbing then going for a death roll. With a snake wrapped around his head, there was probably little point rolling around.

That is one bad ass python though. That gator was much bigger, to go up and bite him on the nose like that... fair play to the fellar.
I remember when this website was all fields!

kudos to the snake, i think it would take a lot of courage (or stupidity) to bite an alligator on the nose like that, infact at one point i was expecting the snake to start constricting the alligator in some attempt to kill it

It sounded like a few ribs broke when the gator bit the Burm

Doubt there was any chance of that burm actually doing any damage to the croc, brave little bugger hahahaha. Neither really seemed to try and fight properly, looked a bit weird tbh.

great footage! and a rare thing i would imagine! but in my honest opinion i would be surprised if the burm didnt die at a later date due to internal injuries....he took quite a few powerful snaps off the aligator! hopefuly it did survive though...brave burm indeed! and to me seemed to show a level of intelligence at the end that i have not seen in snakes before! it actualy did almost seem to try and intimidate the gator in to leaving...but was also cautious enough to not launch another attack after the pounding it took!...almost as if it had learned it`s lesson so to speak.
my youtube channel...will update as often as possible.
