June 16 (UPI) -- An Australian family captured video of an unusual wildlife confrontation between a snake and a water dragon lizard in their backyard pool.

The video, posted to YouTube on June 9, shows the water dragon lizard fleeing underwater in the family's Brisbane backyard pool while the snake watches from shore.

The snake eventually slithers into the water as the lizard makes its way to the surface.

The snake strikes at the lizard, narrowly missing and allowing its would-be prey to flee back underwater.
