As per the institute, “Great blue herons eat nearly anything within striking distance, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals, insects and other birds.”
Martin accounted that the wading bird initially play with the baby alligator for at least 20 minutes before it start on eating it.
A per the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, great blue herons can reach a length of almost 54 inches (137 centimeters), but merely weigh up to 6 pounds (2.7 kilograms).
The video provides fascinating glance at the large bird’s eating behavior. It doesn’t appear to take much time for the reptile to cheer up, which is intriguing for beings to notice, but terrible if you are like a small alligator.
