IPOH: Thinking a two-metre long python will be easy prey, the four-metre long King Cobra decided to have it for breakfast.
However, the two ended up being snared by four personnel from the Civil Defence Department.
The department's senior civil defence assistant Jasri Mohd Yusof said it received a call at 8am yesterday about two snakes fighting at a playground in Canning Garden.
"When our team reached the site, we found two injured snakes," he said.
"We believe the King Cobra had wanted to eat the python but the python put up a fight," he said.
The men took some 10 minutes to catch the reptiles, which will be handed over to the relevant authorities.
