Wild Mongoose Takes On Four Lions In Viral Video (Video)

| by Emily Smith

A video that features a Mongoose combating a pack of four lions at the Masaai Mara National Park in Kenya went viral on Tuesday, after it was uploaded to YouTube.

The footage was captured by photographer Jerome Guilaumot in 2011, but was just recently released.

In the footage, a Mongoose bravely steps up to the pack of lions, who soon fall back. Unsatisfied by just that, the Mongoose launches a surprise attack on the lions before retreating into a hole in the ground. The Mongoose then emerges for a second attack and again scurries into the ground.

At one point, the Mongoose even bites one lion on the nose.

“It’s not about the size,” one video commenter insisted, “it’s about the heart.

The video has accumulated more than 300,000 views to date.
