A very brave and quick mongoose has set a precedent for any small creature looking to evade a group of incoming lions.
The mongoose was gravely outnumbered and out-sized but managed to intimidate the lions by becoming the aggressor, appearing more ready to attack than the large predators.
The mongoose even persists after getting swatted on the head, continuously baring its teeth and hissing loudly.
One might even compare the strategy to that of an MMA underdog looking to catch a more powerful opponent off-guard.
According to the Huffington Post, the footage was taken in Kenyas Masaai Mara National Park by videographer Jerome Guillaumot in 2011, but was only recently made available online.
