    Rattlesnake fight ends with loser getting shoved off a cliff in Virginia

    Noooo Poor Snake, I hope he was tough enough to survive that

    A vicious “combat dance” involving two large timber rattlesnakes was recorded on a Virginia mountain cliff, and it ended in a move many consider foul play.

    How sad... I had to back up & watch the slip again- they were so absorbed in their wrestling match that they weren't paying attention to the edge- the one that went over mostly did that to himself, his heavy body got too close to the edge & he simply slipped. Whether or not he could have survived that, I can't say. But if he did, it HAD to HURT. Poor snake- I'd have been looking for him, down below.

    This is how male rattlesnakes decide who's the strongest- the one that gets the mate- it's basically just a shoving match. Going off a cliff was totally accidental, not part of the plan.

    And yes, I hope your dates turn out much better but this wasn't the actual rattle-date: it would be like if you arm wrestled another guy while on a rooftop to see who gets a date with & then one of you accidentally fell off the roof, making the decision for you.

    Wow that's insane! Hope the snake that went over the ledge made it out okay. That's an unfortunate location for them to have been fighting.
