These Snakes Look Like They’re Dancing, But They’re Actually In The Midst Of A Fight

Things get real in the snake world when mating season rolls around.

Take a look at what these two black mambas are doing, for example. It might look like they’re dancing at first, but they’re actually plaiting. Basically, this ritual entails pushing each other around until one gives up, and the victor gets the girl.

Watching them in action is beautiful…until you think about just how deadly they are.
