So Lake Moondarra, Queensland, has got crocodile-eating snakes? Well that’s nothing, because the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in De Leon Springs, Florida, has Alligator-eating otters.
Yes, those adorable slippy-slidey creatures that are hands down the best part of a trip to the zoo just became NIGHTMARE FUEL. These photos, originally posted to the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge’s Facebook page in 2011, were reposted earlier this week because if you’ve got photos of an otter eating an alligator, you’re not just going to sit on that sh*t.
A comment posted to the album reads:
Yes, the otter eventually pulled the alligator up on the bank and proceeded to consume it, as evidenced by crunching noises. They were no longer visible at that point, but the alligator was done resisting when dragged out of the water. Despite their disarmingly cute appearance, otters are the apex predator of many freshwater habitats.
OK great. So otters now revealed to be terrifying creatures; have no natural predators. It’s only a matter of time before SyFy puts Ottersunami or some crap into production.
I don’t know about you, but I need to Clorox these images from my head — so please enjoy this video of nappy otters floating around, holding hands.
