A pair of snakes became entangled in a Queensland resident’s backyard on September 20, fighting on the ground in what has become a regular sight for the homeowner.
John Benedetti captured footage of the incident before posted it to Facebook.
“These snakes have been at it for a couple of weeks,” he told Storyful. “It’s happened multiple times.”
According to Benedetti, the pythons live in a mango tree in his backyard but frequently fall out of it when they start fighting.
“They usually fall out of the tree onto my shed and work their way to the ground,” he said.
“After they fight, one usually heads straight back up the tree, whilst the other waits until the first snake is far enough up the tree, [then] the losing snake is able to climb the tree again without being hassled.” Credit: John Benedetti via Storyful
