Komodo Dragon Violently Turns The Tables On Python Coiled Up Around Its Lower Body

Komodo dragon attacks snake

When your back is against the wall and the death is imminent, survival instincts kick in.

That’s exactly what happened with this Komodo dragon, who somehow found itself in a life threatening situation going up against a python. The video picks up pretty far along in the fight with the python already coiled up around the lizard’s back, but it still manages to capture the best part of the battle.

Komodo dragons are the largest lizard species on the planet, and have proven to be very impressive fighters. Some of the largest of the Komodo dragons can grow to be almost 10 feet long, and can weigh upwards of 150 pounds. They are considered to be apex predators, which explains why this one in the clip below was able to turn things around on the python.

The snake thought that it had the battle all wrapped up (pun intended), but it might have all played out to the Komodo dragon’s survival plan. Once the python was coiled up around its lower body, the snake probably thought that it was going to make short work of the large lizard.

However, the Komodo dragon wasn’t going to go down without a fight, and actually still felt pretty good about defeating the powerful python. Though it took a couple of strikes here and there from the snake, it stayed as calm as it could and landed a couple of defensive shots on the snake.

The python kept trying to go in for the “kill shot,” but failed time and time again as it was met with devastating retaliation from the Komodo dragon. With the snake’s head being its only real weakness, it kept trying to be careful when it went on the offensive.

One of the last time it went in to strike the lizard, the Komodo dragon grabbed the snake’s neck (do snakes have necks?) with its jaws and snapped down with tremendous force. Almost immediately, life begins to drain from the python, and the tight coil that it had around the giant lizard’s back begins to weaken.

Being careful, the Komodo dragon continually chomps down on the snakes head to ensure that it would no longer be bothering any other Komodo dragons. As it continues to pull and bite on the snake, it also begins to work its back legs out from the strong grip of the snake.

Just goes to show you that you shouldn’t ever mess with a Komodo dragon, if you had ever considered doing so before. Take a look at the shocking fight to the death in the video below:
