The woman who shot the clip, Shannon Moskoff, posted a second video explaining the incident after "Inside Edition" contacted her.

"So I was on my way to pick up my coffee from Starbucks and I was driving around back, and all of a sudden on the side there, I see this branch," Moskoff said. "So I said to my friend, 'What is that?' And we stopped because it was moving, and all of a sudden, we see that it's iguanas with the iguana's head inside the other one's mouth."

According to Medium, male iguanas "vying for territory and mating privileges engage in very intense combat, with head butting, pushing, shoving and locking of the crests on top of their heads."
