A video of two snakes locked in an impressive duel has attracted more than 49,000 views on Facebook.
The two pythons can be seen tangled together and emit aggressive whistling noises, after they fell into a bedroom in the suburb of Kenmore Hills in Melbourne from an air duct.
The video was broadcast live by Snake Catchers Brisbane on Sunday and shows the two male coastal carpet pythons fighting for the right to mate with a woman in the area.

"People often confuse this with mating, but it's a fight," confirmed snake catcher Lana Field, who filmed the extraordinary event.
According to Field, whatever snake won the battle, then he would get the right to pursue the female sought in the area whose pheromones can smell.
The two snakes had fallen from the roof, pushing through an air duct deck, into a bedroom of the unsuspecting inhabitants.
Users of social networks were surprised with the video, with a person who commented & # 39; Oh hellllll not & # 39; and another saying, "Imagine being in that bed when they came out through the ceiling vent! MY GOD !!! & # 39;
Users of social networks were surprised with the video, and one person commented, "Oh, no, no."
Ms. Field called the two pythons of a "small and average size" area, with a length of about 1.75 meters.
"They can continue like this for hours, too, until one is exhausted, feels like he's going to win the battle, get on the top and leave," he said.
Ms. Field also commented that it had been an "extremely busy day" for Snake Catchers Brisbane and that they had received many calls.
