Rat Attacks Snake To Save Her Baby

Mother’s love is a very powerful thing! 

A mother rat fought off a ferocious snake in a desperate bid to save her baby. In a nail-biting video, the incident played out on the side of the road as the snake attempted to slither away with a baby rat.

The video was posted on Facebook by Rojas Montecinos Envy, with the caption: ‘Today while I was returning home, I witnessed this amazing act of love from a mother.’

Here’s the Mom of the Year — since we’re assuming this is a mother rat going after a snake who’s trying to run off with her baby in this video. Either that, or this rat should be wearing a cape and blue tights. Check out this awe-inspiring footage as a little dude (or dudette) keeps chomping to save a littler baby from certain death.

Also, we’ll go into SPOILER territory here and declare this video has a happy ending. There isn’t some car coming along to run over the baby rat at the end, and no bird of prey swoops down to eat either of the rats. This is just some pure feel-good video for the weekend. With, you know, vermin that you’d want dead if they were in your bedroom closet, but you’ll feel fine cheering on here…
