The incredible images show the bird devouring the helpless alligator

In 2017, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute posted a video of a heron devouring a baby alligator.

‘Great blue herons eat nearly anything within striking distance, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals, insects and other birds,’ FWC wrote.

‘This large, wading bird is a familiar sight to most Floridians.

‘It’s a permanent resident of wetlands throughout the state, often seen along ponds, lakes and canals in housing developments.’

As of Tuesday, Gilliam’s images generated more than 71,000 shares

The adolescent alligator was apparently too young to survive in the wild.

In the first years of an alligator’s life, they tend to eat small animals and stay near the water, surviving on insects, snails, worms, birds, and small fish.

The juvenile alligator stays with the mother for about three years before venturing out on their own in the wild.

After growing to a length of about four feet, the alligators is considered invulnerable in the wild.
