Watch the Intense Battle Python Vs. Monitor Lizard

This isn’t your typical battle between predator and prey: we bear witness to a fight to death between two of the world’s most terrifying reptiles.

Who do you think will win this battle – python vs. monitor lizard?

The coastal carpet python is tightly wrapped around the body and back legs of a lace monitor lizard. Known for its strength in constriction, it attempts to overpower the lizard.

Meanwhile, the lace monitor fights back with its sharp claws and powerful limbs, leaving severe wounds.

The Battle

The coastal carpet python, measuring up to 13 feet, is a formidable predator. 

The Python's Strengths

Its main strength lies in its ability to constrict, exerting immense pressure to subdue its prey.

On the other hand, the lace monitor lizard, which can grow up to 6.5 feet, boasts powerful limbs and sharp claws, ideal for climbing and digging.

The Monitor Lizard's Strengths

Its agility and speed make it a difficult target for predators, including pythons.

Being cold-blooded, they rely heavily on external heat sources and can become sluggish in cooler temperatures. They also lack speed and agility.

Weaknesses: Python

Lace monitors, while fast and nimble, can become vulnerable when caught off-guard or when facing a predator adept at ambush, like the python.

Weaknesses: Monitor Lizard

That being said, Lace monitor lizards are renowned for their speed, capable of running up to 15 mph!
