Florida is the Australia of America. I’ve said this before here on BroBible and I’m sure that I’ll say it again. From snakes to gators to sharks to spiders, there are more deadly creatures here in Florida than anywhere else in the country.
I was fishing for largemouth bass yesterday on my day off just a mile from my house and came upon a 7-foot alligator just chilling between some tall grass next to a pond. These creatures are everywhere. In fact, if you see any lake in the state of Florida it’s safer to assume that there’s a gator in there than to assume that the lake is free to swim in.
In the latest ‘WTFlorida‘ incident to make headlines, a large alligator was found on the 10th hole of a golf course entangled with a Burmese Python, an invasive species which is slowly but surely taking over the swamps of Florida. Golfers at Fiddler’s Creek in Naples, Florida came upon these apex predators tangled in a battle for their lives:
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a large alligator fighting with one of the invasive pythons and it’s most certainly not going to be the last. As these Burmese Pythons continue to grow and proliferate out of The Everglades and into the northern reaches of Florida we’re going to continue to see snakes and gators fighting it out for supremacy of the swamp. They don’t want to have to compete for food on a daily basis so it’s easier to just fight it out…Nature is crazy.
