A snake will easily see off a centipede in a fight to the death, you may be thinking.
But watch the video above and you might find yourself eating a slice of humble pie.
For this is not just any centipede â this is a giant centipede with more grip than a Dyson.
In the shocking encounter between snake and insect itâs hard to tell which fearsome predator comes out on top.
The pair are seen wrestling and writhing around on the ground, each animal attempting to pin down and devour its rival.
While the snake uses its strong body to try to suffocate the centipede, it fights back, its many legs digging into the reptileâs skin.
It flips the snake over, causing it to twist and turn on the ground before finally losing the strength to fight back.
The centipede crawls on top of its nemesis and in a final blow, appears to sink its teeth into the snakeâs neck.
The reptileâs body twitches before the video cuts out.
It is unclear where or when the footage was recorded, but it has been seen by thousands of viewers on video sharing site LiveLeak.
‘Giant centipede? Now thereâs something else to add to my nightmares,â one viewer commented on the clip.
