Fun Fact: Mongoose are small rodent-like animal that resemble meerkat. Found in Asia, Africa and parts of Europe. This animal has an interesting trait. Mongoose seem to be almost immune to snake venom. The battle between these two creatures was made famous by Rudyard Kipling.
Based off of a short story in Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. I loved this movie as a kid. The music and situation are more serious than your average animated feature, but the hero is to this day one of my favorites. I recommend watching with your kids if you have not seen this before.
Thanks guys see you tomorrow.
I remember Riki Tiki Tavi from when I was a kid although not sure I remember a movie. That video clip is quite something, they are so fast, mind you I didn't realise the snake could move that fast either, not just the strike but slithering forward. I remember a Black Racer in North Carolina which shot across our yard like a bold of lightening.ReplyDelete
and here I was going for the cobra...don't take me to Vegas!ReplyDelete
It's a strike and a miss. Strike and a miss. Strike and a miss. And then tables turn and it's a strike and a hit. That mongoose was impressive.ReplyDelete
Snakes terrify me. I couldn't watch the entire video.ReplyDelete
Amazing they take on a cobra like that. Remember that cartoon from when I was younger.ReplyDelete

We loved that book and that cartoon! Our kids wouldn't sit down on the toilet before checking for snakes. Good times.ReplyDelete
I've never seen a mongoose, but I know better than to mess with one. That was a good movie. :)ReplyDelete
