When you think of squirrels, you think of them as docile creatures whose mission in life is to gather nuts, that can on occasions get aggressive.  

 

So, when you expect a fight between a squirrel and a snake, you certainly don’t expect the furry nut-gatherer to go up against a much-feared reptile.

 

But then again, we’ve all heard of the adage: Never judge a book by its cover.

 

This particular squirrel, was feeling ravenous, and decided to pick its next meal -  a snake -  and won!

 

The snake tried to fend it off, but to no avail.
