    That is upsetting to watch people just let poor animals battle it out for entertainment. That snake wasnt even big enough to eat that gecko. What a shame.

    LOL are those tokay's? Them vicious little things.
    Also, it is sad that people are just watching but if it is out in the wild and they happen to stumble across it then why should they disturb nature?
    We bring home rodents for our reptiles and we watch all the time. (or i should hope you watch your snake for protective measures.)

    Ambitious little snake, lol. Oh, well, maybe next time his eyes won't be bigger than his stomach.

    Those are Tokay Gecko's and the snake was a Golden Tree Snake also known as the flying snake.

    To be completely honest, I never intervene on nature. If I see something like that happening I just sit back and watch. I have seen some really cool stuff(once in a life time stuff), I love to see how nature plays out. I remember watching a Trantula Hawk dragging a Trantula across a dirt road and down into a hole where she was to leave it to incubate her eggs. It was absolutely awesome. I mean really, what would happen if you weren't there?

    That isn't nature. I have no problem if that were to naturally happen. I wasn't disturbed but to me that was no different from dog fighting. They set that up and there was nothing natural about it. Don't get me wrong I think it was cool how the gecko saved his buddy but how can you call that natural. Nature had nothing to do with it. Tha snake did just naturally stumble upon 2 geckos. That's all I'm saying. I wouldn't even have a problem if the snake could even eat that gecko but there is no way so it was going to die for pure entertainment if it wasn't for the other gecko.
