The lens came two male gray tree-climbing snakes, or rat snakes that fought for territory and females, reported NDTV.

Officer of the Indian forest service Susanta Nanda shared on social networks this video. The footage shows that the struggle of males starts in the water.

Then they climbed out of the water and continued the fight in the thickets of fern. Nanda wrote that many perceive this behavior of snakes, as a mating ritual. But it's not.
