(FOX 35) – A father and son walking near Lake Apopka on Saturday were shocked to see an alligator devour another gator.

Landon Small was with his father, Keith, when he pointed out a gator in Lake Apopka chewing up the smaller reptile, according to FOX35 Orlando.

“We were like, ‘There’s something in its mouth,’ and then we were like, ‘Oh, it’s a fish,'” Landon Small told FOX35. “And then it moved and we were like, ‘Oh, it’s another gator!'”

The hungry alligator was estimated to be 14 feet long, while its snack was estimated to be about 5 feet.

Gatorland director Mike Hilman told FOX35 that alligators are cannibalistic in nature.
