Oh, my. I always worry about the alligators getting the birds not the bird getting the alligator.

Lisa, it makes me wonder - what sort of a stomach must those birds have to digest something like that ?! ..... and do purses and wallets come out the other end ! 😁

The alligator was a baby so perhaps not too difficult size wise - I have seen Herons (and Pelicans!) consuming ridiculously large prey items. I wonder if it broke its neck before swallowing it though? It’s a risky meal otherwise.

I saw a hognose snake swallowing a toad. I probably should have let nature be, but I bonked the snake on the head until he spit out the toad. The snake split, and I took the toad to a friend of mine who rehabs toads. The toad survived, but he was kind of PTSD after that.
