Come to King Cobra, best you should not miss! The snake fights to escape the death grip of the python, killing and devouring it in the brutal battle to the end.

This is the dramatic moment a king cobra was found on the roadside locked in fierce death grip with a python.

The two predators clashed in the undergrowth before spilling out in front of passing drivers in Nakhon Si Thammarat, southern Thailand on December 9.

Incredible images show how the python wrapped its thick body around the cobra and tried to constrict its adversary, which then sank its fangs into its opponent’s neck.

Onlooker Anoochit Preecha watched as the two reptiles both struggled to exert dominance while they were twisted in the fierce duel.

He said: ‘One was fighting for its life, and one was satisfying its hunger. I’m lucky to have witnessed such a rare event.’

Pythons kill their prey by strangling them to death, while cobras strike at the base of their target’s neck to inject a deadly venom.

On this occasion, the cobra was able to hold out long enough while its deadly venom weakened the python, causing it to lose its grip. It then slowly died before the cobra swallowed it whole.

Some snakes, including pythons and cobras, engage in cannibalism when they clash over food or territory.
