A ᴅᴇᴀᴅly sea serpent and an equally ᴅᴇᴀᴅly stonefish were captured on camera engaging in a ғɪɢʜᴛ to the ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ. Rick Trippe, an Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀn spearfishing champion, saw the snake and fish engaged in a lethal embrace and attempted to break them free.
However, his efforts were in vain because as soon as the ᴅᴇᴀᴅly foes were let back into Darwin’s harbor, they reengaged in their ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ lock.
According to Mr. Trippe, they drove over in a state of interest to discover this enormous, thick sea serpent that was almost two meters long and had a ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs fish in its mouth. The sea serpent and the fish appeared to be in a tight grip and were quite dejected. He didn’t think he had ever seen a snake appear dejected.
Mr. Trippe felt certain he could safely assist because he was an experienced seaman. Knowing that sea snakes are extremely ᴅᴇᴀᴅly, he grabbed the snake slightly behind the head with extreme caution because he adored animals. He took the lethal fish out of its mouth and body.
He then let the snake go and took it away from its food. It was remarkable how it sprang to life again and appeared so content the instant he threw it back into the water. But a short while later, he noticed the snake swimming around and making a second run for the fish.
According to Mr. Trippe, the snake and fish would have finally perished if they had poisoned one another during the conflict.
