Snake Dance

On 2 March 2011 I posted the following video "Snake Dance."  I assumed it was two snakes in some kind of mating behavior.  Today, I was watching a story on Discovery's "Wildest India" about male cobras fighting each other during mating season.  Since they are immune to each other's venom, it becomes a battle of strength, trying to knock each other to the ground.  And, it looked exactly like my next-door snakes in March!  So, instead of the mating dance I assumed it was, it was probably a battle for territory and women.  The ones in my video went at it for four hours even knocking each other down an embankment into the road.
