THIS King Cobra Is Holding Up Traffic. Then An UNTHINKABLE Surprise Snatches Him Off The Street!

King cobras have earned their fearsome reputation as a deadly snake whose bite contains enough venom to kill a human. In some cases, people have died less than 30 minutes after the deadly bite, and those who survive have reported that it’s extremely painful to endure and can have long lasting detrimental effects on the human body.

Even more astounding is the fact that their bite is capable of killing huge elephants in mere hours. While king cobras usually prefer to avoid humans, contact with them is inevitable as we encroach more and more on their territory. They can be found all across India and Southeast Asia!

One little, scrappy feisty mammal has absolutely no fear of the deadly king cobra. This mammal is the mongoose! They are very smart, clever and are well known for their ability to fight snakes, particularly cobras, often winning and then eating them whole. Some species of mongoose are resistant to the neurotoxins found in snake venom which makes then a natural predator to the snakes. Basically making the snakes main weaponry obsolete!

In the short footage below a king cobra has found a sunny and relaxing spot to bask in the sun on the warm paved road. The slinky snake has unknowingly stopped traffic and people quickly pull out their phones and cameras to snap pics and film the dangerous creature. Thankfully, in India they are protected and anyone found guilty of killing one can be sentenced up to 6 years in prison, so no one would dare run it over so publicly!

But that doesn’t mean the snakes out of danger because nearby its fiercest enemy lurks. A mongoose spots the snake, sees dinner, and advances towards it with no hesitation. The two battle each other, with the snake striking multiple times and the fast mongoose dodging and weaving his way around the assault. It soon ends and the mongoose emerges as the victor, carrying his cobra off the road with him so he can eat it in privacy.

I would never have thought the mongoose would win, or even be so brave. I guess a little knowledge goes a long way, and hope you learned as much as I did.
