Lion Vs Mongoose: Mongoose Fends Off Four Lions

I just received this video thinking it’ll be the typical nature-sweet-story but found myself laughing all the way through amazed at the gall of this Mongoose going after not one lion who could kill her with the blink of an eye but four… which shows that it’s not the size that counts as much as the determination & she has it in bucket load!
There’s a lot we can learn from animal-behavior & I have the feeling that even though information is so much more available today we only have seen a fraction of it.
Just thought it would be a nice way to start off your week 🙂

Lion Vs Mongoose: Mongoose Fends Off Four Lions


Four lions were left with their tails between their legs when a mongoose bravely took on the predators. Despite being under two feet tall, the aggressive mongoose growled at the felines and even bit one on the nose. The shocking fight, which was photographed in 2011 but has just been released, began in the Masaai Mara National Park, Kenya, when photographer Jerome Guillaumot came across four young lions surrounding the terrified marsh mongoose. The lions chased the mongoose into a hole in the ground but the small animal reemerged to fight the predators once again before running for cover. For more information, visit
