Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Snakes wrestling…

No,  for once I’m not referring to Congress,  or even politics,  but two actual snakes,  both poisonous.   The truly odd thing is that one is a water moccasin,  commonly called a cottonmouth,  and the other is a copperhead.   It isn’t common to see two different species fighting each other,  and these particular two generally prefer different habitats,  so this footage is  all the more remarkable,  even in Arkansas.

The few snake fights I have personally observed were generally between the same species,  and none bit,  but in the only one I saw between two different species,  they bit and rolled furiously instead of merely wrestling.
