In one of the most surreal videos you may ever see, a snake tried to fight off a cat by biting it while a toad was busy sucking in the snake by the tail. Fortunately the cat was unharmed by the snake’s bites since the snake couldn’t lunge forward. The snake, however, was not so lucky.

After the cat wandered away, the toad continued sucking in the snake like a strand of spaghetti. This lesson from nature tells you that being a cat isn’t so bad after all and that if you’re going to fend off enemies, make sure you don’t fight two of them at once.
