PICS: Otter attacks alligator... not so cute and cuddly anymore!

2014-03-07 10:08
Is it just us or does it seem like all sorts of creatures have suddenly developed a taste for croc/alligator meat?

Not too long ago, we had that video of the jaguar swimming across a river (SWIMMING ACROSS A RIVER) in Brazil's Pantanal wetlands to pounce on its tasty treat - an unsuspecting caiman. 

And then, more recently, there was the huge python won a life and death battle against a crocodile in Australia, swallowing the animal whole after a lengthy struggle. 

Well, shocking new images have surfaced of the creature that may have started it all back in 2011 - an otter preying on an alligator at Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in Florida, US. 

While the incident may have happened a good couple of years ago, the photos have only been shared by the reserve recently, after photographer, Geoff Walsh, sent them in. 

Take a look and weep for the loss of your otters-are-so-cute-innocence. We're sorry!
