That's awesome. Not many times the gator doesn't win.

Against people maybe, but it didn't do the 'gator any good.

To be fair, it was only a small 6ft gator ;)

Wonder if a fully evolved one could break its shell.

Maybe, but he'd have a problem with a big alligator snapping turtle. Some have long enough necks to reach around and bite back, and a big one can take a huge chunk of flesh - human or 'gator. There are reports of these up to 400 lbs.

It's not surprising the alligator couldn't crack the shell. Most of the time, it's hard to get inside of a cooter... :shifty:
