‘This was awesome. I got front row seats to these big boys battling it out for the right to scavenge at our campsite over on Bribie Island around a month back,’

Amazing  footage has shown two giant Lace Monitors battling it out on Bribie Island in Queensland.

It’s not often that this normally solitary species is captured so vividly – let alone caught fighting with each other. It’s believed they were fighting to scavenge at a campsite.

‘This was awesome. I got front row seats to these big boys battling it out for the right to scavenge at our campsite over on Bribie Island around a month back,’ Richie posted on Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 Facebook.
‘I’ve spent my whole life observing reptiles in the wild and this was the first time and probably the only time I’ll ever get to see this epic behavior.

‘All up there was about 6 Lace Monitors cruising around us while this was going on. My brother Steve took this iPhone video and I’m so stoked he did.’

…take that

 

The reptiles were fighting to see which could scavenge at a campsite

 …I’ve had enough of your greedy ways, away with you

 

The video was shown on the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 Facebook

 …putting on latest move taught by the sensei

 

It’s not often that this normally solitary species is captured so vividly

 …I’ll be back. Off to re-strategize  for the next meet

 

Eventually one of the battling pair has enough of the fight and gives in
