Such a harsh decision for the python was made due to the fact that these reptiles are an invasive species that cause considerable damage to the local ecosystem. When the scientists brought the dead snake to the laboratory for an autopsy, it turned out that the python was lucky at least in that he ate very tightly before his death. A 1.5-meter alligator was found in his stomach, which, judging by the excellent preservation of the body and only slightly damaged scales, had just begun to be digested when the snake was killed.

Rosie Moore, who not only took part in the shocking autopsy, but also filmed it, said that scientists know of cases when Burmese pythons swallowed alligators whole, but this should not be considered a common and widespread phenomenon.
