  1. Can't the alligator eat his guts?

  2. Herons bring the H in Horrible.

  3. Not impressed. Try that with an adult….

  4. Yep Dinosaurs were real without a doubt lol

  5. That's how nature works 😁

  6. Why are you not doing anything

  7. Nature you scary!😬😳😬

  8. Alligator might look macho and all but 💙💙💙 blue heron knows the art of winning . Just sayin 😂🤭

  9. Photographer: 📸🐊🦩

    Me: Is that a baby blue heron gator shoe on your feet or are you just happy to see me?

  10. It's the circle of life. 🗣 🎶🎵

  11. That gator later ate his way out of the bird.

  12. The baby gator was just like

    Okay 👌

  13. And Then a Florida snake hunter comes along and kills the Python cause its Florida 😂😂😂

  14. They swallow all their prey head first so they cant crawl back out !!

  15. that's for that dog you tried to eat!

  16. It hurt going in imagine it going out😂😂

  17. I'll never understand how these birds digest animals half their size, they must have food processors inside.

  18. Remember, that heron is an actual, living dinosaur!! of course that gator is gonna be lunch

  19. Ah yeah, the true dinosaur shows who's boss. (Birds are technically dinosauria.)

  20. The freezing cold and the snow kills all the bugs off and their spiders here don't get that huge like the ones in Florida and they don't have a mosquitoe infestation problem here either the cold kills them off.

  21. I hated living in Florida it's way too hot too muggy and there's way too many bugs and too many snakes and alligators for me! I left in 2013 lived in Colorado for 6 happy years.

  22. These birds will eat anything. I live in Florida and while they usually hang out down the harbor occasionally I get them in my back yard raiding my pond. I have seen them eat snakes longer than themselves, turtles wider than their mouths, rats, blue crabs that would make a nice meal for an adult human, and every species of fish including sharks. They might look harmless and not particularly intimidating but be grateful they aren't as big as ostriches.

  23. I've never seen a bird eat an alligator

  24. Kamala gettin that promotion 👏

  25. Watch "Genetically Modified Super Soldiers – MSM are showing you Secret technological advances -Stop it !" on YouTube..

  26. Trump trying to swallow Bill Barr.

  27. I thought it was going to be "great blue heron caught on florida swallowing baby blue heron"

  28. I have seen the birds eat baby Chicks alive. These birds are disturbing because they eat a lot of babies alive.

  29. These birds swallow other birds whole so I'm not surprised

  30. the thumbnail preview for this video cut off the "alligator" part of the title so it just says "great blue heron caught on florida swallowing baby" lol
