Soper had apparently seen the same animal eat a different smaller gator a week before filming this footage. 显然地, it’s not uncommon for alligators to engage in cannibalistic behavior.

Sometimes it can be territorial, but very often alligators are cannibalistic,” 他说. Morse also explained that male gators tend to be more aggressive during mating season, although they may remain more active than general during any of the warmer month.

When a gator catches a larger animal, it may not immediately try to eat it. 代替, they have been known to drown the animal and then carry it a hidden area. After a week or two, the gator will return and eat the partially decomposed prey.

It’s unclear in this latest footage if that is what the larger gator plans on doing with the smaller one. The fact that it pulls it into its mouth whole, 然而, would suggest that it’s possible that the larger animal plans on saving its prey for a later date.
