A Florida snake gave it his all to survive the clutches of a gator at Circle B Bar Reserve.
BirdWalk Photography captured these photos with the caption: “We made it out to Circle B Bar Reserve yesterday! As you may have noticed in the news, there are often interesting gator sightings at this park. Yesterday was no exception! Jesse’s eagle eye spotted this big guy working on his lunch and his lunch trying to escape! I just started clicking…!”
Unfortunately, despite the valiant effort by the snake, the gator did prevail.
Many commenters believe the snake was a banded water snake. This is not the first time Circle B Bar Reserve has been in the news for gators, in 2018 a very large alligator took a stroll through the reserve.
