Python Bursts After Eating Gator
« on: October 12, 2005, 01:20:38 pm »
Unfortunately for a 13-foot (4-meter) Burmese python in Florida's Everglades National Park, eating the enemy seems to have caused the voracious reptile to bust a gut—literally.

My snake is pretty dumb. He strangles a mouse to spend 15 minutes trying to find its head... then swallows it tail first anyways.

Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

The score is Crocs 1, Snakes 0.

Should the Snakes be -1 and the Crocs be 0 because the croc lived and the snake died?

I seriously doubt that, These kinds of snakes usaually crush their prey before eating it to soften it up and make it easier to swallow. It would take ages for a python to swallow a croc, it would be impossible if it was still alive. I'd say its a nil/nil draw.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I would call it a wash.

Even if the Croc lived, it still has to go back home and deal with all the other Crocs reminding him that he let himself get eaten by a snake.

If we are both allowed to use our full abilities, then I could EASILY take them both at the same time. Shoot them a couple times and they're done.

No, you have to only use what nature provides, you get put in a big swampy arena with the python and the gator, you start butt naked and have no weapons, you have to use your human ingenuity to fashion weapons and clothing and po-own (or however you say that) the other two, or you could wait until the python tries to eat the gator, then were back to square one. If its in your full ability to assemble a functioning gun from ingredients found in alligator infested swamps then go for it! ;)
