This is the moment a snake preying on a gecko was caught in a deadlock in Thailand.

Footage shows the gecko biting the snake’s midsection while being constricted in Kantharalak, Si Sa Ket province on August 28.

Onlooker Akaradech Susuk said the struggle went on for hours, with neither reptile loosening its grip.

He said: ‘Onlooker Akaradech Susuk said: ‘I was about to go to a toilet in my house this morning and saw the gecko biting the snake’s body. It kept holding on until the afternoon.

‘I thought it really wanted to taste the snake’s liver.’
