A medium sized Alligator with a just caught, Soft Shelled Turtle in it's mouth.

I watched and shot for about 15 minutes and left. Later I saw others still watching this slow moving drama unfold.

The point being, once they catch their prey, Alligators are in no hurry to finish their meal.

So, if you are ever caught by an Alligator, hang on to your sports water bottle and be prepared for a long afternoon.

And remember, resistance is futile.
