Watch Two Black Mambas Fight for Territory

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


Black mambas are some of the world's most venomous snakes. They have incredibly toxic venom that acts as a neurotoxin and can lead to the shutting down of vital organs and can even be fatal.

It's not everyday that people see black mambas, but it's interesting to watch their behavior, especially if you're a snake aficionado.

In this video, two black mambas duke it out to find out who is the bigger and badder snake. The one that wins is the one that wins the territory.

It's very interesting how the snakes coil around each other. This is actually the snake trying to push the other one another away. It's like a game of chicken, and they'll have it until one of the snakes finally gives up.

Hopefully the guy filming got away alright; as soon as the fight was over, one snake was destined to run, and the one that won wanted its territory to itself.
