A picture of a squirrel clutching a snake has gone viral on social media. The image shows the rodent down to the last two inches, clearly reversing the rules of nature.
The image was shared online by USA’s National Park Service, who said that it was clicked at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
The image had a caption, “Don’t Mess with Texas Squirrels! Rock squirrels eat mostly plant material, fruits and nuts, but don’t let their humble appearance fool you. They will also eat bird eggs, lizards and snakes. This photo from Guadalupe Mountains National Park shows a squirrel and snake in battle. Who won? The squirrel, which devoured most of the snake, bones and all, down to the last two inches.”
The image was shared over 3400 time on social media.
As per another Huffington posts, the picture dates back to 2009 and has been shared yet again. It’s reported that the squirrel was a nursing female, which is probably why she got “extra defensive” when she saw the snake.
