Watch: Wild horse fights giant alligator at a Florida national park

A new viral video has surfaced that shows what happens when two powerful and wild animals come head to head. This time, however, it doesn't occur on the plains of Africa but in the swamps of Florida.

In Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park just south of Gainesville, a group of hikers calling themselves the "A-Team" stumbled upon the beautiful site of a group of five wild horses, including a young foal. Nearby, however, was a very large alligator that was wandering a little too close to the herd.

One of the horses, not tolerating the gator's intrusion, ran up and kicked the giant reptile with her back legs. The gator began to move away, but the horse was not done with the reptile yet. The horse moved in for a second pass at the gator, stomping him on his body. The gator responded this time, however, reaching up and managing to get a quick bite in on one of the horses legs.

At that point, both creatures had made their point. The horse trotted back into the high grass with his herd, as the alligator moved off in the opposite direction.
