Gator Tussle: Alligator vs. Alligator Battle in Florida


These two alligators were spotted attacking each other in a vicious struggle for supremacy. The battle was filmed in Clearwater, FL. The broadcast for this fight was cut short when the gators splashed into the water.


This kind of behavior is common for alligators; Predatory reptilians such as alligators and crocodiles will often engage in battle with one another for a variety of reasons, such as when food is low, for territory, or for dominance. Alligators can be very aggressive, and this natural aggression does not differentiate between species.

During this time of the year, for approximately two months, the gators will spar and wrestle with each other to prove who is the strongest and most fit to reproduce. These battles will often result with the loser being badly injured.

The gators in this video are probably not cannibalistic as much as they are wrestling. These creatures will, however, engage in cannibalistic and violent behavior from time to time.
