Submitted by Rick Hamell: Alligators have clashed with nonnative pythons before in Everglades National Park. But when a 6-foot gator tangled with a 13-foot python recently, the result wasn't pretty. The snake apparently tried to swallow the gator whole and then exploded. Scientists stumbled upon the gory remains last week. The species have battled with increasing frequency scientists have documented four encounters in the last three years. The encroachment of Burmese pythons into the Everglades could threaten an $8 billion restoration project and endanger smaller species, said Frank Mazzotti, a University of Florida wildlifeprofessor.The gators have had to share their territory with a python population that has swelled over the past 20 years after owners dropped off pythons they no longer wanted in the Everglades.

The Asian snakes have thrived in the wet, hot climate. "Encounters like that are almost never seen in the wild. Ö And we here are, it's happened for the fourth time," Mazzotti said. In the other cases, the alligator won or the battle was an apparent draw. "They were probably evenly matched in size," Mazzotti said of the latest battle. "If the python got a good grip on the alligator before the alligator got a good grip on him, he could win." While the gator may have been injured before the battle began wounds were found onit that apparently were not caused by python bites Mazzotti believes it was alive when the battle began. And it may have clawed at the python's stomach as the snake tried to digest it, leading to the blow up. The python was found with the gator's hindquarters protruding from its midsection. Its stomach still surrounded the alligator's head, shoulders, and forelimbs. The remains were discovered and photographed Sept. 26 by helicopter pilot and wildlife researcher Michael Barron.

A Russian man faces a prison sentence after police caught him dismantling and stealing a road.The 40-year-old managed to take apart an entire road in a remote part of the country and steal a total of 82 concrete slabs that used to form the route between a local village and a nearby river. The slabs were loaded on to the back of three trucks after being dug up using a special bulldozer.Police eventually intercepted the theft and retrieved more than $8,000 worth of materials.The incident is one of a series of similar thefts in Russia that have taken place in recent months.

Back in June another man was caught dismantling an entire bridge using a welding torch so that he could steal the metal and sell it for scrap. "The man stole 82 reinforced concrete slabs that formed the route from the village of Parcheg inthe republic of Komi to the Vychegda River, the RIA Novosti news agency reported."

Wedding fans David and Lauren Blair hold the record for the world"s most married couple.Some couples have been known to renew their vows or to never even get married at all, but to David and Lauren Blair weddings are more of a run-of-the-mill event than a once-in-a-lifetime experience. After meeting in 1982 the couple have been married a staggering 106 times, placing them firmly within the Guinness Book of Records forthe world"s most married couple."Our original goal was 100, so now that we"ve passed that mark we are looking for new goals to reach," said Lauren.
