A thrilling footage of two giant diamond pythons squaring it out over mating right has surfaced and people can’t get enough of the free entertainment.
The video, which was posted on Lake Macquarie Snake Catcher Facebook page, shows the two giant males twisting and turning each other in a brutal battle over female.
“They were fighting for an exclusive right to mate with a potential female in the area. Whoever loses the fight has no choice but to leave and the winner becomes dominant male,” explains Colin Shoemark, administrator of the Lake Macquarie Snake Catcher Facebook page.
A lady, who goes by the name Kelly Cox, is one of those who witnessed the fight first hand. She initially thought the two snakes were mating. But clearly she was wrong.
“My dog, Milly, was not very impressed by the fight, but for me it was awesome to see such a rare spectacle,” says Cox, who stays not far from where the battle was unfolding.
It is not yet clear which of the two bulls carried the day, even though the match attracted quite some viewership.
As of today, some 127,000 people have watched the recorded battle, which has also been shared over 1,370 times.
