Massive Alligator Eats Other Alligator Whole in South Carolina

A cannibal alligator scarfed down another alligator in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, on September 30. This video shot by Taylor Soper shows the massive reptile eating the other.

Taylor Soper captured the video from his parents’ backyard and shared the footage on Twitter. He told Storyful the smaller gator was at least six feet long.

It is not unusual for alligators to eat other reptiles. If the gator has caught something too large to eat in one bite it will drown it, according to reports. Afterward, it will store the dead prey to allow decomposition and easier consumption, according to the same reports. Credit: Taylor Soper via Storyful
