Epic battle between cobra and brown snake eagle, this might be the most polite battle ever


In Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀ’s Kruger National Park, tourists captured an epic struggle between an eagle and a snake on camera. According to van Eeden, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Cape Town who is researching the extinction of martial eagles in Kruger, such interactions are occasionally observed and much less frequently seen on camera.

According to those who posted the footage, the eagle made an attempt to move on the snake before fluttering his feathers as the cobra spat ᴛᴇʀʀɪғʏing poison. The mighty eagle was being assaulted by the ᴅᴇᴀᴅly serpent as they sᴛᴇᴀʟthily circled one other. They kept looking at each other until the eagle finally gave up and flew.


According to Van Eeden, the bird is most likely a brown snake eagle searching for a snouted cobra. According to Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀn herpetologist Johan Marais, the dark banding on the snouted cobra’s throat can be utilized to identify it.

Brown snake eagles are the largest, with wingspans up to 5.3 feet and weights up to 5.3 pounds (2.4 kilograms). According to Van Eeden, they regularly take their prey whole and have been known to eat even the most ᴠᴇɴᴏᴍᴏᴜs snakes, like the well-known black mamba.
