Both fearsome enemies of snakes had an unfriendly confrontation, the loser became food for the victor.
The mongoose is a snake-eater, but an Lizard also fell prey to them in a day when the mongoose could not find any other food. The two had a tense match before the loser was decided.
Although the Lizard is quite small, its size is still not inferior to its opponent, yet in this fight the mongoose is the complete domination. It bites the Lizard’s nose and drags its opponent around on dry leaves.
Finally, the Lizard was subdued, and the mongoose was free to bite and eat this hearty delicious dish to fill its hungry stomach.
The amazing video was posted on Youtube and garnered over 4m views along with loads of amazing comments about the fight. Most people cheer for the mongoose.
