A man tried to help a mouse while it was being eaten by a snake.
Footage shows the resident pulling the rodent out of the reptile’s mouth that was hiding behind a steel pipe in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, Thailand on July 2.
The mouse was almost saved but the snake resisted which startled the man and let go of the creature.
Onlooker Supchet Ro said: ‘The snake was determined to fight for its food. Too bad for the mouse but that is just how nature works. The snake was removed by rescuers afterwards.’
