As a small reminder from Mother Nature not to get on her wrong side, here you could see a truly horrifying and clearly one-sided battle between two alligators.

On April 13 this year, after getting up, Alex Figueroa took a morning stroll in his neighborhood of Lakeland, Florida. When he was enjoying his peaceful walk, he was surprised to find a huge alligator eating a smaller alligator and started filming such amazing event immediately. The larger alligator was estimated to be nearly 3.3 to 3.6 meters long.

Although it could be regarded as extreme behavior, cannibalism is seldom found among alligators. However, as a matter of fact, a study showed that up to 7 percent of baby alligators are devoured by their own species.

In the interview with National Geographic Christopher Brochu, an alligator expert from the University of Iowa, said that gators were thought to be quite opportunistic and would take anything they could find as food, which could fit down their throat.
