Squirrel kills snakes and eats it down, photos going viral

We all will pick Snake if ever asked who will win between Snake and Squirrel fight? However, recently a squirrel defeated snake and killed it. See this viral photo where a squirrel is gulping down a snake to the last inch. The way squirrel has clutched the snake in the claws displays immense strength and lack of fear. The squirrel and snake picture has been shared online by USA's National Park Service. It says that it was clicked at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.

"Rock squirrels eat mostly plant material, fruits, and nuts, but don't let their humble appearance fool you. They will also eat bird eggs, lizards and snakes," they wrote while sharing the photograph, adding that after the picture was clicked, the squirrel proceeded to devour "most of the snake, bones and all, down to the last two inches."

The picture is going viral and becoming popular as this is an unusual sight. There are over 7,000 reactions and more than 3,000 'shares' ever since the photo has been shared on the web. People are appreciating the photo and sharing it immensely on the internet. They are dropping in comments as they find it an unusual sight. 

According to the Huffington Post, the picture was clicked back in 2009 by park ranger William Leggett. However, it was recently shared online again. He said that the squirrel was a nursing female, which is probably why she got "extra defensive" when she saw the snake.
