The Natural World's David and Goliath Battle: Cobra Vs Mongoose.

Although this You Tube video from National Geographic has over 50 million views, I'd never seen it before. Fascinating!

"Mongooses can see colours, unlike most mammals, which have only partial colour vision...If the [prey] tries to flee, the mongoose chases it. It kills its prey while they are both running by delivering a bite to the neck or head...The mongoose is a fast and agile hunter."

Indian gray mongoose.
