A terrifying snake fight has been caught on camera in Maharashtra's Chandrapur forest. A python was caught leaping out of a pond to attack a deer. A herd of deer was drinking water from the water resource, when the snake took its chance and attacked the deer. Although pythons are non-venomous, they kill their prey by constricting them. The dangerous scene was captured on a CCTV camera set out in the forest to keep a watch. The forest department released the footage on social media last week and since then the video is going viral. Python Eats a Crocodile!

A herd of deer drinking water from the pond was clearly unaware of the danger that awaited them. A python struck at its prey by jumping out. The deers did move when they figured out something moved but for one of the deers, it was too late. The python struck and then coiled around the deer to strangulate it. The deer got pulled into the swamp and the fight for survival continued in the water. However, the python had got control over the deer and reports say, it swallowed the deer soon enough. The footage was released by Central Chanda Forest Department. Python Measuring 13-feet Hid in China Spa Ceiling For 10 Years, Found After Falling Through Plasterboard.
