- After the family uploaded the video it went viral garnering many views
Another snake story comes to us from Australia.
A family came back home in Queensland and they saw this horrifying scene.
The video shows two pythons fighting each other hanging from the roof of their house.
"Breeding season has definitely begun now, so this male to male combat may be a common sight throughout the coast over the next couple of months," they wrote in the caption to the video.
A snake expert noted: "They don't bite or constrict each other, as this competition is about which one is physically stronger. What they are doing is attempting to repeatedly push the opponent down and stay 'on top'. The victor, having proven himself the buffest snake on the block, wins the right to mate with any nearby females while the loser slinks away to try his luck elsewhere. Neither snake actually suffers any damage."
