Male Pythons Wrestle for Right to Mate

Fiona Sheen spotted this intense struggle for power in her pool, when two male carpet snakes decided they both fancied the same girl.

She told Storyful: “The pythons were fighting over a nearby female python. All three pythons have been hanging around our place and our neighbours place for over a month.”

Male pythons are known to ‘wrestle’ in order to win a mate, determining who is stronger in the battle for a female snake. Credit: YouTube/noosafifi
