Video: What happens when house cat takes on alligator?

Updated: 



The moment a brave house cat took on an alligator has been captured on camera - with surprising results.

A number of alligators are lounging in water next to a yard, where a curious cat can be seen approaching one of them.

One man can be heard saying: "Cats are smart, they know how to stay out the way."

While a girl pleads: "Ahhh. Don't eat the kitty." She adds: "Oh God, get the cat away, it's going to eat the cat."

The two animals then engage in a prolonged face-off, before the cat takes a swipe at the alligator and it makes a surprisingly hasty retreat back into the water.
