A video of war between a snake and a mongoose is going viral on the Internet. In the clip, one can see the snake trying to save itself from the mongoose.
The video has been shared by Indian Forest Services official Dr Abdul Qayum. In the short clip, the mongoose and the snake are seen at war.

The video has been watched over 9 thousand times on the social media platform.

If it was the other way round, someone might have interfered as snakes are supposedly “evil”..

The mongoose is known for its ability to fight and kill venomous snakes, especially cobras. Their specialised acetylcholine receptors render them immune to venom.
This was terrifying.
