The most viral video in which a gang of Meerkat also known as Mongoose challenged a gigantic cobra that stunned Twitter users.
The images, shared by a user on the social network, show the animals – at first glance so tender and harmless – surrounding the snake which, in turn, tries to scare them away by jumping. Several seconds later, it leaves the site.

These small mongooses are immune to snake venom, and this is the main reason why they are not afraid to attack the cobra. Although they mainly feed insects, sometimes their prey includes lizards and snakes.
