Standoff Between Monitor Lizard and Python

Occurred on December 6, 2018 / Tambon Salaya, Amphoe Phutthamonthon, Thailand

Info from Licensor: "A giant monitor lizard fights a python in the middle of Mahidol University's park where I'm studying. I was on my way back home from class with a friend when I saw this happening. It started out with a small number of people watching the situation. There was just one monitor lizard and the python at first. The lizard was trying to get close to the python but the python would attack and go nowhere. Then, another giant lizard came to join. They were both going around the python. From what I heard from the people standing there, the python was injured by the lizard. That was the reason it didn't escape and it attacked the lizard to protect itself. In the end, an exchange student walked right in. He separated the two animals. The lizards went into the lake. The python then got caught by security to return it to nature."
