These snakes like to move it move it
AN ENTRANCING video of two snakes 'dancing' has gone viral on Facebook.
Cheryl Judd posted the video of the snakes outside her home at Whian Whian.
"These 2 pythons were fighting in my gutter a couple of weeks ago," she said.
"We had a great view outside my dining room window.
"One snake kept falling and would climb the trees and back onto to roof to have another go.
"He did this 3 times."
Since being posted, the video has been shared more than 11,000 times.
The reaction to the video, while varied, has one thing in common: People can't seem to look away from the "dance" - which is, according to some, a show of male combat to attract a female snake.
Some people have found the video of the two serpents terrifying.
"Whilst I love nature and respect all living things, I would have been in Tasmania by now," Marea Korn said.
"Oh.. no.. heck naw. I'll be screaming not recoding this. OhMyGahhh. I would never step out side in this matter ever again," N'tash GoMrs said.
Others found the video entertaining and interesting.
"Wow, that's super amazing! You are so lucky to have this display at your home! And very lucky to have snakes like that too! Some very desirable girl is probably nearby, so the two males fight for her," Christine Fiechtl said.
"Wow superb thanks for sharing. Two males fighting for power. They are not small. Have to say not sure if I could have filmed as well as you but fascination may have overcome fear," Melanie Dargie said.
