Florida Wildlife Captures Incredible Action Pics of Alligator vs. Raccoon

A raccoon came sniffing by, and then, seconds later, a battle straight out of National Geographic unfolded pitting an alligator against this terrified raccoon.

Check out the photos, just released late last week, after the jump.
