Epic Cobra Battle Caught on Film

An odd video from South Africa features a fearsome pair of venomous  snakes engaged in an epic battle. The riveting footage, which runs a  remarkable three minutes long, was captured by a monkey welfare worker  visiting the Limpopo province of South Africa. Initially thinking that  he'd simply spotted a strange stick, Dave Du Toit soon realized that he  had actually stumbled upon something wonderfully weird.

In the video, two ring-necked spitting cobras, known as rinkhals,  wrestle around on the ground with their jaws locked in a proverbial  death grip. Although tangled up at first, the two snakes eventually  change tactics by becoming fully stretched out in the dirt and rolling  around in what seems to be an attempt to tire their opponent. Meanwhile,  Du Toit and his colleagues look on in amusement at the showdown  unfolding before their eyes.

Check out the amazing video, which features something of a head-scratching soundtrack, at the Coast to Coast AM website.
