Mouse attempts to Defend Other Mouse from Viper

At the Hangzhou Zoo in China, zookeepers witnessed an unusual sight during a routine feeding of a viper. Defying the natural order of things (viper eats mouse, mouse passively complies), one brave rodent decided to turn the tides on the viper, and attacked him. Typically when feeding large snakes multiple mice, one will go and hide while the other is slowly devoured. But this mouse refused to let the other mouse go down without a fight. He began biting the snake in defense. Although it was too late to save the first mouse, the zookeepers granted the second his freedom, saying he deserved it. The animal world is certainly a crazy, different world from our own. And sometimes animals defy the natural order of things and amaze us.
