Shocking Moment Two Pythons Dropped Through Ceiling While Fighting Over Female Snake (Photos/Video)

The fighting pythons

An Australian snake catcher has captured on camera, the moment two coastal carpet Pythons attacking each other inside a family’s spare bedroom.

The drama between the two reptiles all went down after the male snakes fell from a ceiling duct inside a home in a western Brisbane suburb.

“This pair has been a bit naughty,” Lana Field from Snake Catchers Brisbane said in a Facebook Live from the scene on Sunday. “They have pushed their way through from the ceiling and left a bit of a mess.”

The snakes, apparently “small” for that area, are about 5.7-feet-long, Field said, as the reptiles thrashed and wrestled near a bedroom closet. The video shows the snakes twisting around each other, and even slamming the other to the ground.

The reason for the violent fight? A lady snake. Field explained that males tracking the scent of a female python will often duke it out to prove who is stronger, and more deserving of the mate.

“They can continue like this for hours until one is exhausted,” Field said.

While these snakes were evenly matched, Field said battles between large and small snakes can end in a nasty bite. Field, who appeared feet away from the raging pythons, also assured viewers that she was watching at a safe distance and the snakes were more interested in each other than her.

She recorded more than five minutes of video before she said she caught and relocated the pythons to a bushy creek over a mile away.

No word on the location or relationship status of the female python at the center of this love triangle.
