The tragic fate befell a colloquial snake, when it was resting in a tree in Etosha National Park, Namibia, when it was suddenly attacked by a mongoose.
After climbing up the tree, the mongoose leaped onto the colloquial snake’s body, gradually approaching the highly ‘huge’ reptile’s head.
The colloquial snake tried to crawl away, all the while trying to shake off and shake off the mongoose that was clinging to its body.
However, all efforts were unsuccessful, the colloquial snake unable to move while the mongoose continued to sink its sharp teeth into its head.
Elana Erasmus, a tourist from South Africa, captured the entire scene. Some snakes may wrap themselves around the mongoose in a desperate attempt to defend themselves or try to attack the attacker with an extremely poisonous substance.
According to eyewitness Erasmus, there were several times when the mongoose slipped from a tree, but immediately climbed up, determined to “𝓀𝒾𝓁𝓁”, the colloquial snake.
After a while of fighting, the colloquial snake was exhausted from its injuries and had to agree to bring the cheeky mongoose his food.
