This epic snake fight took place on the MacRitchie Nature Trail on the Northern side of the reservoir. Both species are indigenous to the jungles of Singapore and both snakes are apex predators.
Both species are known to eat each other but the King Cobra is known to feed on other snakes and often initiates the confrontation while the python more commonly defends itself by constricting and eventually eating the King Cobra if it is able to subdue it without being bitten.
The footage shows the cobra sneaking up to the python from the back and as the python tries to wrap itself around the cobra, she bites him on the back and leaves. Witnesses who were there said that the Reticulated Python eventually died from the bite of the King Cobra.
