The python attempted to bite the bird but began to deteriorate with the tight grip of the kookaburra’s beak.

‘Every time the snake would inch its way up to wrap around or try to bite the kookaburra, the kookaburra would whip the python onto the fence post,’ Ms Rapoport told Yahoo News.

‘Unfortunately at the point I coughed the bird went flying off into the trees with its very tired and weak prize.

Ms Rapoport said the onlookers were ‘sad’ the snake had lost the battle.

Kookaburras are carnivorous birds who prey on snakes, mice, insects and even the young of other birds.

Snakes are a favourite of the native bird who use a ‘wait and swoop’ technique to catch them with their beak, according to the Australian Reptile Park.
