Never Give Up

Scientists in Florida stumbled upon the remains of a Burmese python that tried to eat a six foot alligator whole. Both died in the struggle.

It's quite a gory sight. This is what happens when two creatures used to being king of their domain encounter one another. The python is obviously not native to Florida and, according to officials, is a burgeoning problem. They were likely first introduced to the area when a pet owner got rid of their snake and have quickly begun wreaking havoc on the Everglades ecosystem.

To be honest, the scene reminds me of the famous frog-bird cartoon:

And let this be a lesson to you. Don't ever give up.
