    John Benedetti, who lives in Australia’s Queensland, was recently minding his own business when he came upon a pair of snakes tussling in his backyard - again.

    Shockingly, this isn’t exactly a first for the Aussie homeowner, who told video licensor Storyful that the two pythons actually live in a mango tree in his backyard and have been at each other “for a couple of weeks.”

    “It’s happened multiple times,” Benedetti said. “They usually fall out of the tree onto my shed and work their way to the ground.”

    “After they fight, one usually heads straight back up the tree, whilst the other waits until the first snake is far enough up the tree, [then] the losing snake is able to climb the tree again without being hassled.”

    Persistence is key, it seems. It’s anyone’s guess which slithery warrior will win the next round.

      Enough Encroachment Already! Baby Jumbo Hilariously Kicks Out Interloper

      It is said that elephants never forget but this angry, young pachyderm in particular seems to have been born with some sort of collective memory and is instinctively aware of all the troubles its kind has had to suffer at man's behest and it isn't going to stand it any longer - so, though young, it teaches man a lesson.
