A video of a playful tussle between a couple of baby alligators and a stork is being widely shared on the internet after it was shared by a wildlife park.
Gatorland, a wildlife park in Florida, shared a video on their Instagram page in which a couple of alligators are seen taking on a wood stork that is thrice their size.
“Don’t freak out, all the animals are fine, just a lesson regarding nature. Small alligators are feisty no doubt but still very vulnerable to a gigantic wood stork. That clicking sound you hear is his beak,” said the post.
The video starts with one of the alligators climbing on to a wooden platform, in an attempt to bite the stork. However, the bird reacts almost immediately, snapping its beak at the alligators and forcing a hasty retreat.
As the bird follows them into the water, another baby alligator takes a bite at the bird. The stork once again snaps its beak, this time striking the animal. The video ends with the alligator retracting going into the water.
