Sea Snake attacks, Electric Eel fights back

An amateur video from Assorted TV showing an intense fight between the venomous sea snake at the sea bed.

The footage started at the snake biting the tail of the eel. The eel looked so relaxed, but started to fight back by swimming in circles.

When the eel got its chance to get close to the snakes body, it delivered a strong bite that caused the serpent to loosen up.

Then they bite each other's tails, swimming in circles until the eel reaches the snakes head and gave it a strong bite.

The eel finally managed to escape and hastily swimming away leaving the snake injured.
