The python wrapped itself around the alligator’s neck to suffocate it while the alligator bit the snake.
This is the incredible moment a python wraps itself around an alligator’s neck in a brutal deathmatch on the shores of the Florida Everglades.
The Burmese python was photographed trying to restrain the angry beast not far from a paved road where people were traveling.
Mortal Combat – The Burmese Python can be seen wrapped around the alligator’s neck where it will attempt to squeeze the life out of its foe. An anonymous photographer captured the scene, which shows the two in the middle of battle at Everglades National Park in Homestead. .
Two beasts were caught in combat at Everglades National Park in Homestead, Florida, last month. The alligator can be seen trying to defend itself, and it has maneuvered the mighty serpent’s tail into its jaws, and appears to be holding back.
At the same time, the snake has managed to coil itself around the beast’s thick abdomen and is doing its best to constrain the beast. It is not clear who has won the fight.
The two were fighting on the side of a road in the Florida Everglades, where pythons began competing with indigenous alligators for supremacy. Pythons are not native to Florida and were introduced by accident, but have been able to compete with other dominant predators and stay alive.
Burmese pythons now compete with indigenous alligators for supremacy in the region. They are capable of killing alligators, but usually only the younger ones, which are easier to engulf with their jaws. It is unclear how the standoff ended.
The confrontation, in late October, came just days before another python and an alligator were trapped down each other’s throats on a Florida golf course.
