Alligator eating turtle 2

Heard the commotion when this huge gator caught a fairly large turtle. All the birds were squawking. It didnt take him long to crush the shell and devour the turtle. He crushed the shell like it was a potato chip. I have been trying to upload video ofit. But so far have been unsuccesful. Not sure what the problem is. Probably better that way, it was pretty gruesome, and many people might be a bit disturbed by it.

    An astonishing series. This one in particular is fantastic. It is a gruesome sight, but there are few more amazing spectacles than one of these primitive beasts feeding.

    Amazing series. I am always amazed when I see turtles right next to these big predators. I KNOW they can eat them, and here is proof. WOW, great capture. (Yours, not the gators!)
