Snakes are often regarded as being around the very top of the food chain, but sometimes even these slithery reptiles bite off more than they can chew. Certain animals don’t like abiding by the laws of nature. From a rooster stomping the life out of a cobra to a cat defying all odds to protect her kittens, and a freshly-hatched Iguana outlasting swarms of snakes– here are 12 times snakes messed with the wrong opponent.
Turtle Bites off Snake’s head
Snapping turtles are as ferocious as they come. Their bite packs a punch of about 209 Newton, if you’re not good at science just take our word when we tell you that you wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of this unless you’re into having your limbs chopped off. This turtle, in particular, was having none of the snake’s shenanigans when it snapped the snake’s head off clean. You could argue that the snake brought it upon itself when it crawled into the turtle’s mouth.
Brave Rooster defends Flock
You’d think that a snake could’ve easily gotten the best of a rooster. But roosters are extremely territorial of their homes. A rooster will go so far as to sacrifice its own life to protect its flock. So going guns blazing inside this rooster’s home turf wasn’t such a good idea for this cobra. A rooster in India showed some real pluck when it obliterated a cobra that was trying to attack its flock. The snake tried desperately to catch a breath but the rooster never gave it a chance, constantly pecking at it with no remorse. After carrying the snake away from the rest of the chickens, the rooster ended up swallowing it whole.
Cobra and mongoose
When we got closer we saw that the ground squirrels were trying to keep the Cape cobra away from their underground burrows, where they raise their young. The squirrels took turns constantly attacking the cobra from different angles.” Ground squirrels across the globe are known for their snake-taunting tendencies. Research conducted in California found that squirrels use their fluffy tails to help see off rattlesnakes. The tail-flagging displays may serve as a warning to snakes that the squirrels are vigilant and ready to dodge an attack.
In this case, however, they received a helping hand from a yellow mongoose that entered the fray, at which point “the ground squirrels took a rest and watched from the side as the mongoose had its moment to defend and attack,” de Matos recalled. Mongooses – armed with a handy resistance to the cobra’s otherwise deadly bites – will readily take on these snakes and other venomous species. It’s unclear if the mongoose was actively trying to make a meal of the cobra or if it simply wanted the snake out of its territory, but either way the vicious onslaught worked. As soon as a gap became available, the cobra slithered to the safety of a nearby burrow
