    New Delhi (Sputnik): With forked tongues and shiny black scales on their slithering bodies, which can reach up to eight feet in length, non-venomous rat snakes are known to not be aggressive towards humans. But the sheer sight of them can send chills down the spine of anyone.

    A pair of naughty snakes was caught on camera performing a mating dance ritual in Valmiki National Park, located in the Indian state of Bihar near the India-Nepal border.

    Indian Forest Officer Parveen Kaswan, a popular  personality on social media, identified the dynamic dancing duo as rat snakes.

    In the video, the two snakes can be seen tangling their bodies around each other while lifting a few feet in the air. 

    The mating dance is actually combat between male snakes competing to determine which is strong enough to pursue the female in the area.
