Below this Alligator was finishing with a catfish, I think it had become aware the other locals were heading this way.

It was interesting that no real fighting happened, maybe because the catfish was finished. However the larger one looking to steal the fish didn’t just let it go. He continued to confront the smaller gator.

Below you can see he swam up, and over, the smaller gator. Pushing it around, maybe a dominance thing.

Below he did look to have his jaws against the others back. There never was any thrashing like a big gator fight.

The original gator is the right size for a full adult female. The would be thief is larger, and looks like a bull male. It’s also Alligator mating season.  Maybe he didn’t really want the catfish at all LOL.
