This is the fascinating moment two rat snakes were seen mating in the backyard of a house in northern Thailand.

Footage shows the two reptiles doing their ceremonial mating combat ritual in the grassy part of a yard in Uthai Thani province on April 12.

Silchai Khayan visited his sister’s garden to take some mangoes from its tree surrounded by tall grass and met the unexpected guests.

He said: ‘These rat snakes are normally not dangerous to human but they are very horny.’
