THERE is nothing us Aussies love more than a good snake video – with our slithering neighbours always providing some great entertainments.
Here is five of our favourite snake videos from 2016.
1: Video of snake eating snake goes viral
A video of what is believed to be a Mulga snake eating a brown snake on a property near St George has become a social media sensation.
St George’s Rod Avery shot the video after a long day lamb marking on Burgorah, 15km north east of St George.
2: ‘Only in Australia’: Snake stops play
Dugites are native to Western Australia, you mightn’t be familiar with them.
You probably are aware of cricket games being held up for all many of reasons – rain, bushfire, heat. Now add dugite to that list.
Thanks to Clinton Joynes who shared this video of an unexpected visitor to Halls Head Junior Cricket Club's match in Meadow Springs this morning.
3: Blue-tongue lizard faces down black snake in Merimbula
What happens when a blue-tongued lizard comes face to face with a red-bellied black snake?
A Merimbula man had a front row seat to the showdown on Thursday while working on a home in Long Point.
4: Black-headed pythons fight for love
It may look like a scene from Dirty Dancing, but this footage taken on Toomba Station, Charters Towers, captures two male black-headed pythons fighting for the right to breed with a nearby female.
The video was shot by property owner Josephine Heading who shared it back with her local natural resource management group, NQ Dry Tropics.
5: Woman finds red-bellied black snake hiding in pocket of recliner chair
A woman had a rude awakening while relaxing at home on a property just outside Bega.
“I was sitting in my recliner on Tuesday morning (June) looking for my glasses and I reached down to a side pocket and there was something cold and slimy in there,” a shocked Joyce Parbery said.
