Alligators are one of the creatures which are naturally huge in size. According to National Zoo, the average adult size for a female is 8.2 feet (2.6 meters), and the average size for a male is 11.2 feet (3.4 meters).
With this, it is inevitable that they can easily swallow their food in just go especially that they have very huge mouths!
Just like this alligator who is now getting attention online after photos of him eating a huge watermelon in just one snap went viral!
A video from St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park showed how an alligator bites its prey and how the intensity of the bite can shatter even a watermelon. The video also shows that the teeth of alligators are really sharp as the hard covering of the watermelon was easily crushed after the reptile “closed” its mouth.
According to Hype Virals, the alligator is named Bomber and is currently part of a wildlife park that takes care of wild animals that a lot of people often fear.
Meanwhile, many people were amazed by Bomber’s video that it managed to gain over 26,000 shares since it was posted.
This just shows how fierce the alligator can get especially if faced with life and death situations or extreme hunger. But, this video should not hinder us from continuing to make the world know that alligators, along with all other reptiles should not be feared but given extra attention as they too are only trying to live as part of our community and it is a sad truth that their kind is slowly depleting as the years go by.
