Spotted in Dandaragan in Western Australia, these two brown snakes fought like mad to secure the affections of a female brown snake in order to mate with her.

According to the <a href="http://australianmuseum.net.au/eastern-brown-snake" target="_blank">Australian Museum</a>, male brown snakes will fight for their opportunity to breed with a nearby female.

The museum states: “The combating snakes intertwine tightly and wrestle for up to half an hour or more, with each snake trying to push down and overpower the other.”
