Man Can't Believe What He Found Inside 15-Foot Gator (Photos)

Taxidermist Ken Owens has skinned and mounted thousands of wild animals at his Autaugaville shop. But this is the first time he has stuffed a world record alligator. The more than 1000-lb primeval beast was killed in the Alabama River last year.

When Owens cut open the gator's stomach, he was surprised to see a pair of ears. He pulled on the ears, and out came the carcass of a partially deteriorated, but still intact female deer.

The giant gator had apparently eaten the adult female deer whole. The deer was thought to be around 3 years old, so it probably weighed close to 115 or 120 pounds.

The deer was apparently one of the last things eaten by the 15-foot, 1,011.5-pound alligator. The world record reptile was brought in by Mandy Stokes and her crew on August 16th. The monstrous gator will be put on public display in the future.

Owens noted that the deer’s hair was gone and some of the meat had also been digested. Of note, a good bit of the cartilage and the hooves were still intact in the stomach.

In an interview, Owens noted he regrets not checking out the stomach when he did a full-body mount on the prior Alabama state record back in August 2011 (it was 14 feet, 2 inches and weighed 838 pounds).

Owens is a certified scorer for Safari Club International. He measured the Stokes Gator for world-record status, and cut open the stomach after a request from biologists who wanted to know what an animal that size might eat.
