Mother animals must be constantly vigilant of their young to keep them out of harm’s way. In this video footage, a human family witnessed a dramatic battle for survival right outside their window and from a safe distance away. A large black snake has discovered a wild rabbit den and is attacking the baby bunnies. They cry out in distress and at 0:19 the mother rabbit returns to protect them.
Just like when a mongoose takes on a king cobra, this mother rabbit disregards her own safety and takes on the snake attacking her children. She is unrelenting in protecting her young.
The mom is determined to finish the snake off and chases and attacks it several more times at the risk of her own safety to make sure it never comes back!
