the gator the burmese python ate was already dead and decaying thats why the python exploded i watched the nature shock program on it,those anacondas are just eating caiman under 6ft,ive seen a retic take out a big mugger croc 10ft+and a large afrock take out a 9 to 10ft nile croc unfortunately i didnt see footage of them eating them though just killing them

I saw another program saying that the Burm ate the Gator then another gator came & ripped the Burm open.. there are so many stories about that picture

on the program they proved it mate the snake never killed the gator it had already been killed the snake then ate the slowly decaying alli and it was a race against time to see which won the snakes digestion or the rate of decay,there were no outside wounds on the burmese at all they shew you loads of photographic evidence,the gases inside the decaying alli were responsible for the death apparently, the snake actually exploded like a balloon,in this program they actually had the animals it wasnt based on just the photo i think it was nature shock but my mrs said it was a different program shes probably right

A very lucky Burm indeed!

I wonder what damage was caused though to the Burm from the bite?

The alligator looked like he sunk some teeth in!
