Survival of the fittest

The world moves around the concept that one who is fit only those can survive on this earth. There is always a struggle for existence on the planet. This saying reminds us of the founder of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin

At the Eastern Himalayan Botanic Ark, we spotted the struggle for existence, in live form through this picture. One of our colleagues, Mr. Pranab Deka was lucky enough to capture this rare image of two fighting snakes. While walking on the road we encountered these two snakes fighting. The image is displaying that, while competing for food, the yellow and black striped banded krait is attacking the rat snake near the neck region and trying to kill it. The picture is also depicting banded krait as dominating in the competition. These snakes also display their behavior in this ecosystem in regulating the food chain.
