Australian homeowner Cheryl Judd, captured footage of two huge male pythons battling each other for the right to mate with a female just outside her dining room window. She wrote on Facebook:
"We had a great view outside my dining room window. One snake kept falling and would climb the trees and back onto to roof to have another go. He did this three times."One commenter, David Cranswick said they were not really fighting:
"These carpet pythons are not fighting, this is their mating courtship ceremony. I've looked after carpet pythons for many years, these movements are typical of courtship. Male pythons don't fight with each other over territory or females unlike humans."
