“The Unforeseen End of a Fishing Battle: A Catfish Caught in the Middle of Two Competitive Snakes (Video)”

This amazing scene captured the intense battle between two hungry snakes fighting over a live fish. The Checkered keelback, found in Madhya Pradesh, India’s Kaha National Park, had successfully caught the catfish from a nearby stream. The first keelback had already taken hold of the victim with its mouth, lifting it out of the water for its lunch. However, as it was about to consume its meal, another keelback appeared and bit off the tail of the fish, resulting in a fierce fight between the two snakes.

Strive to live in the present moment, rather than just existing. During the altercation between two sharks, a fish was also struggling to break free. It eventually succeeded, displaying a remarkable amount of personality. The three animals remained frozen in an unusual position for approximately 30 minutes.

Eventually, the snake that was gripping the tail of the fish gave up and sank back into the river. After a few minutes, the fish began to move again, causing the second snake to release its hold and retreat. The fish managed to return to the water, but both snakes were left without sustenance. The fact that the fish swam away led observers to believe that it was still alive.

The common keelback is a venomous water snake that can be found in Asia, while catfish are easily recognized by their barbels that look like whiskers on a cat. Check out the incredible fight captured in the video below:
