Snake ʋs Catfish: Tᴜg of War Over a Live FιsҺ – Vιdeo Insιde

This is the amazing moment when two hungry snakes found themselves caught in a tug of war over a liʋe fish. The first checkered keel ripped catfish from a stream in Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh, India, on July 20.

It struck the ʋictiм in its jaws and was pulling it out of the water for lunch when a second keelfish reared up and severed its tail. I was lucky enough to take some perfectly timed photos and videos showing the reptiles fighting over their lunch.

The two snakes were not only fighting, but the fish was also trying to escape the situation, a feat it finally accomplished after 30 minutes. That fish had a strong will. My passion and holiness is capturing rare moments and watching this was inedible. This was the first time I saw a fish that dared to fight a snake.

The three creatures were trapped in the strange position for about 30 minutes. The snake that was holding the fish’s tail got tired first and dropped into the river. The other snake had to break free a few minutes later and slide off as the fish began to wriggle. The fish pushed her back into the water and the snakes ran out of food. The fish swam away so I’m sure it was still alive.

The keeled snake is a common and not huge water snake found throughout Asia, while the catfish is known for its prominent pellets, which resemble a cat’s whiskers.
