Courageous soul of Rick Trippe is just not ready to stop. In another instance of bravery and his love for animals, he tried his best to save a Sea Snake and Stonefish.
The rift between them took place and got caught in the sharp eyes of famous Australian spear fisherman Mr. Rick Trippe. He then showcased a very human example by his quick reaction to the situation.
Two metres long snake and a giant stone fish were fiercely into a fight. They were looking in no mood to leave without killing each other. Mr Rick was passing the place in his motor boat when he had to turn his boat to click this epic battle in his camera.
He told- "'The fish had a great hold on the sea snake and both looked very sad. I'm not too sure I've ever seen a snake looking sad before.' His experience worked well for him and after a hard try, he was finally able to break their enmity.
Things soon changed. He put both of them back into the Darwin's harbour thinking that they will both go on their individual way. But actually they again started fighting as if they were enemies forever.
Sadly, they both lost the fierce battle and nobody came out as a winner. Mr Rick thought it was because they were both poisoned as both of these species are highly poisonous.
