In this incredible photograph by Marina Scarr, we see an American Alligator about to chow down on an unlucky Florida gar. The photo was posted yesterday to National Geographic’s Facebook page where it has quickly amassed 95,000 ‘Likes’ and 33,000 shares!

The photo is a submission to National Geographic’s Annual Photo Content in the Spontaneous Moments category.

There a desktop, iPad and iPhone wallpaper available on National Geographic’s site. Many thanks to my friend Fahmi for the heads up on this perfectly timed shot. Amazing submission Marina, hope you win!
