A king cobra and a python recently got tangled up in some risky business

Students on campus at Singapore's Nanyang Technological University got a firsthand look at what happens when big, dangerous snakes clash. This being the Internet era, they also documented it on video. Channel News Asia reported on a half-hour battle between a king cobra and a python, just off the curb of a busy street on the university's grounds. Students told Channel News Asia that the python seemed to have been winning, having gotten a constricting grip on the cobra's head. But, as shown about half-way through the video clip above, the cobra somehow wriggled free and headed off for a nearby wooded area. University pest control staff members were able to bag the python unharmed, but the cobra initially evaded capture. Hours later, though, the cobra was lured out of a storm drain and also captured in a bag. H/T Unilad This post originally appeared on Discovery News
