Another battle between a mongoose and a snake has surfaced on social media - and this one shows the fearless mammal leaping up a tree to catch its prey. The video was shared on Twitter by the Office of the Deputy Conservator of Forests, West Nashik Division, Maharashtra. In the short clip, a snake can be seen resting on the low-hanging branches of a tree. Its peaceful repose, however, is interrupted by a mongoose - an animal famous for its ability to hunt snakes. The mongoose's attack results in a stand-off, with the mammal tugging ferociously at the serpent, which manages to hold on to the branch for some time at least.
