May 31 (UPI) -- A Singapore resident shared video of a tense battle between a reticulated python and a king cobra on a trail near his home.
Sheldon Trollope posted a video to Facebook that he said was filmed by a neighbor on the MacRitchie Nature Trail, which leads to the Upper Peirce Reservoir.
The video shows the cobra slither up behind the python and bite it on the body before fleeing into the bushes.
"So this happened right by where I live on the MacRitchie North Trail. Taken by my neighbor. Reticulated python vs King Cobra. Nature is awesome," Trollope wrote.
Trollope said witnesses told him the python later died as a result of the cobra's venomous bite.
