The video above captures the rare moment when a 5m long venomous snake tries to attack a turtle. Before the attack of the enemy, the turtle was extremely scared and quickly retracted its neck in its shell to ensure safety.
Obstructed by the sturdy turtle shell, the snake was angry and decided to go straight inside the shell to attack its prey. However, this caused the snake’s head to get stuck inside the turtle’s shell.
Venomous snakes have the ability to defeat all prey and have few enemies in the wild, while turtles are known for being gentle and timid but protected by a sturdy shell. So the fight between the aggressive venomous snake and the turtle is likened to a spear against a shield.
The fact that the head was stuck in the turtle’s shell caused the snake to suffer pain and panic, it wagged its tail frantically to get out but still failed.
It took 5 minutes for the snake to get out of the turtle’s shell. It immediately “galloped like a javelin”, fleeing the scene in fear. Perhaps after this incident, the poisonous snakes have learned a life-long lesson for themselves, absolutely do not be attached to the gentle but “martial” turtle.
The turtle shell looks like a strong shield on the outside, but inside it is a combination of ribs and spine. A turtle’s shell is so thick and hard that it evades most predators. Therefore, turtles do not need to run away from other predators.
