The battle took place at Marloth Park, situated on the border of the Kruger National Park, on November 14, Traveller24 reported.

The bird was so good that one of the snakes even pretended to be dead so it could slither away into the bushes. "The snake who originally acted dead woke up and shot off like a rocket into the bushes leaving the bird to attack the second snake until it also played dead, finally pulling the snake around," De Souza was quoted as saying in the publication.

"My wife Beth and I were both amazed to have captured this sighting, it was a fantastic experience," he added.

This is not the first time a bird was captured killing a snake at the Kruger National Park. See another battle that took place at the Park in the video below...
