While in reality our primary export might be iron ore and concentrates (full disclosure, I googled this), it feels like our actual primary export is videos of insane combinations of animals fighting each other. Something about the landscape in this country encourages Highlander-esque battles between snakes and birds and sharks and very big spiders and enormous lizards and basically anything else that can move. We are practically inundated with these videos on a frequent basis, so it is hard for any to stand out from the pack — hard to be shown something you haven’t seen before.

Allow me, for one second, to list for you some titles from American film direct-to-video film company The AsylumMega Shark Versus Giant OctopusMega Shark Versus CrocosaurusMega Shark Versus Mecha SharkMega Shark Versus Kolossus. Allow me, if you will, to add one more to this list: Python Versus Currawong.

You might think that a bird fighting a snake (or vice versa) is not a particularly big deal, but I doubt that you have ever seen a python coil a currawong up to the top of a television antenna like that python is the goddamn winch on a goddamn rescue helicopter.

Behold:

What a country.
