Awesome snake video – so glad these Thai ladies caught this in action. I’d never have guessed the one gecko that was free would go attack the snake. These snakes are notorious for eating these big Tokay geckos. Tokays are C. ornata’s favorite food because they’re slow, stand their ground, and are easily subdued and eaten (usually).
I have seen dozens of photos and videos of Tokays and golden tree snakes fighting and the tokay very rarely wins, but I cheer for the underdog!
