Nogale: dj_spanmaster: Nogale: Why don't the alligators eat them?

Some alligators do, but the gators aren't natural predators. The python, on the other hand, will eat alligators, no problem.

I don't understand how this works. Aren't gators aggressive and fast? Do they just lie around while a python snuggles up and starts constricting?

Well, gators are pretty lazy. Their offense is opportunity sneak attack based. And their defense ... well, you saw what happened in the bowl.

"The stated goal of the competition is to raise awareness of the threat Burmese pythons pose to the Everglades ecosystem."

To about the same degree that a Hooters Girl calendar is to raise awareness of breast cancer.

I'm honestly shocked that we didn't get a Fark team together for this event. This seems like the kind of stupidity that is right up our alley.

If ever there was an excuse for a reality TV show it has to be this.
