New Delhi:

A video of two snakes dancing together at a golf course has left Twitter intrigued. The video was shared by a user, Vasudha Varma, and has ever since been viewed over 8,000 times. The 36-second clip shows two snakes coiling around each other, sheltered by shrubs and trees growing at the end of a grass field.

''A cosy corner in a golf course becomes a dance floor. Gracious, synchronised swirling and twirling! Beauty is nature. @SudhaRamenIFS @ParveenKaswan @rameshpandeyifs @susantananda3,'' Vasudha captioned the post.

Ever since the video has been shared online, it has collected a ton of comments. IFS officer Susanta Nanda also left a comment and confirmed that the snakes were rat snakes and not cobras. Rat snakes are said to be non-venomous snakes that kill by constriction.

Several users suggested that the snakes were mating and not dancing. Others suggested that the snakes were neither dancing nor mating but it was a territorial fight between two male snakes.

Check out the reactions below:

According to the Smithsonian Magazine, two snakes coiling around each other does not always mean a mating dance. Male rat snakes also perform a dance by wrapping themselves around each other and "raising their upper bodies in an attempt to subdue each other". This combat dance is done for dominance.
