An alligator came within inches of catching a bobcat, on the edge of a retention pond in Tampa, but he just missed. A lucky resident with a camera snapped some amazing pictures of the encounter. Homeowner Bryan Peabody was behind his home when a Florida bobcat sitting on the pond's edge caught his eye, so he grabbed his camera. Then all of a sudden the monster head of a 10-foot long gator pops out of the water. Peabody stood riveted and watched as the massive, gator emerged from the pond and with stealth, zeroed in on the cat, moving closer, closer, and closer.
