A woman who stumbled across two venomous snakes engaging in an intense fight to the death has captured the shocking footage on camera.
Jenny Hillman was going for a walk near her property in Ballandean, Queensland – south of Stanthorpe near the New South Wales border – when she came across a red-bellied black snake battling it out with a larger snake.

Ms. Hillman couldn’t believe what she was seeing, sσ she pulled out her phone and started recording the intense battle between the two unlikely foes.
She then posted the footage to her Facebook, which shows a brown-colored snake latching on to a red-bellied black snake, who was desperately trying to retreat.
Ms Hillman said she witnessed the snake battle (pictured) for more than an hour, but she confessed she wasn’t sure what type of snake the brown-colored one was
‘At the river this morning !!!!!!! A truly gargantuan battle,’ Ms. Hillman wrote.
The video shows the red-bellied black snake repeatedly trying to fight off the brown-colored snake by piercing its fangs into its opponent’s body.
At one point the red-bellied black (pictured) snake tries to slither off, but he is unable to break free from the brown-colored snake’s grasp

The post has since garnered plenty of reactions from astonished Facebook users, with many taking to social media to share their comments on the snake standoff.
Ms. Hillman said ultimately the brown-colored snake (pictured) won in the end but was bitten sσ many times by the black snake she doubts that he’ll end up surviving
‘Jenny great footage mate. That would have been amazing to witness,’ one person wrote.
