Everglades python tries to eat alligator... and bursts!
You may have seen the picture of a python that tried to eat an alligator and ended up split in half with a burst stomach. It's a real picture, as described snopes . com/photos/animals/snakegator.asp. The photo was taken 9/26/05 in Everglades National Park, and the American Alligator was 6', while the Burmese python was 13'.
Yes, there are indeed gigantic Burmese pythons in that U.S. National Park. It is Florida after all, and that's where all the strange things go to happen. For more, see "Huge, Freed Pet Pythons Invade Florida Everglades" (news . nationalgeographic . com/news/2004/06/0603_040603_invasivespecies.html) and this NPS report (nature . nps . gov/YearinReview/02_B.html). These pythons can reach 20 feet long. Want to go camping?
