Max Braceland  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
I have been researching alligators, and roughly how long it takes them to digest
food, and found a question on your site of a similar nature: a snake (possibly a Burmese python- it was mentioned earlier in the response) digesting a rabbit in 130 hours. I have wasted a few hours searching on my own, and after reading the site for half an hour, it seems that you can answer all sorts of questions. If possible, could you include an example size of the alligator's meal in relation to how long it takes, as with the snake?

Thank you,
Max

What do you think?
