Four Giant Lions Corner A Helpless Mongoose. What The Mongoose Does Next Leaves The Photographers In Shock

September 22, 2017

The animal kingdom is, without a doubt, full of surprises and unpredictable moments. One of those surprises comes in the form of a rather brave mongoose as it is being set-upon by four hungry lions. If the ravenous predators think they are in for an easy meal, they are profoundly mistaken.

The lions approach the tiny creature together, to prevent it from escaping. The small mongoose sees his would-be attackers advancing and must act quickly if he is to survive. The lions surround the mongoose and prepare to attack but, instead of running away, the mongoose decides to go on the offensive, and the lions have no idea what to do.

The fearless critter begins to scream at the lions over and over again. The loud noise alone intimidates the predators, but then the mongoose decides to do one better and attack the lions in turn! Even when the mongoose makes it back to his hole, he still comes back out for another go at the big cats. Apparently, size does not matter to this cheeky mongoose! Watch the video, below, to see the whole thing for yourself.
