Scary Video: Monstrous Gator Devours Smaller Alligator Whole, Unfolding an Epic Display of Predatory Power in South Carolina

Alligators may be most associated with Florida and Louisiana, but that’s far from the only states these monsters roam.

Alligators are found throughout the south eastern region of the US, as far north as North Carolina and as far west as Texas. They live around lakes, rivers, and pretty much any body of freshwater with enough food to support them.

Typically, they eat fish, birds, snakes, small mammals, and turtles, but on occasion, they will take out a member of their own species. In fact, according to LiveScience, 6 to 7% of young alligators are eaten by a larger, more mature gators.

A video was captured in South Carolina showing just this, and while of course it’s wild in its own right, the size of the attacking gator is almost unbelievable.

We can’t see the full length of this guy because he’s half in the water, but the girth of his head and neck make me think he was 12 feet at least.

Have you ever see a gator with a head like this? I lived in Tampa for 4 years and saw a ton of swamp puppies, some very big ones too, but none that come even close to this guy.

He easily swallows the smaller one, who certainly isn’t a newborn and was probably around 6 feet long, but that was not nearly enough to fight off one of the largest, most menacing creatures on the entire face of the planet.
