Combat Dance

Combat Dance

As these two snakes coil around each other in a seemingly affectionate tussle of mating, all is not as it seems. These are actually two male Rat Snakes who are in combat for dominance, to prove who is the strongest of the pack. While no mating is involved, the two snakes perform the 'dance’ by wrapping around each other and raising their upper bodies in an attempt to subdue each other.
