A ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs snake, which seemed to be a natural foe in the lives of other wild species, was ᴋɪʟʟed by a wild civet right there on the tree, sʜᴏᴄᴋing many people. The sight of a wild civet biting a lethal snake while it was perched on a tree sʜᴏᴄᴋs and amazes all of us, despite the fact that tales of ʜᴜɴᴛers turning into prey are widespread in the animal realm.
The snake Dispholidus typus, which can ᴋɪʟʟ a person with its potent venom, is the most ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs predator in the wild. When it is not afraid of the poison of the snake Dispholidus typus, the mongoose is the enemy of the animal.
When the ᴋɪʟʟer civet noticed the snake move near the branch’s tip, it made a firm but gentle approach. As soon as the snake realized there was danger ᴄʟᴏsᴇ, it tried to flee because the furious civet’s hold was making it tremble.
The unhappy snake made several futile efforts since the civet was determined to consume all of the snake food for the day. The mongoose pursued the ᴅᴇᴀᴅly snake, repeatedly biting its head to inflict pain until it had the chance to shut the snake’s skull with its razor-sharp teeth and deliver the ultimate ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ blow.
The exciting snake ʜᴜɴᴛ in Nᴀᴍɪʙɪᴀ’s Etosha National Park was captured on camera by Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀn photographer Elana Erasmus. The ᴘᴏɪsᴏɴᴏᴜs snake, worn out and spent from biting and fleeing, accepted the worst-case scenario of becoming food for the nasty mongoose. Although they are not cold-ʙʟᴏᴏᴅed ᴋɪʟʟers, mongooses are still capable of immense ᴠɪᴏʟᴇɴᴄᴇ when called upon.
