COMM: In the Kruger National Park, a dwarf mongoose sizes up to a deadly opponent, a
black mamba. COMM: Black mamba snakes are the most feared in Africa, growing up to four and a half meters long. WOMAN: Oh, my god! Look at the size of him. COMM: Their bite is known as ‘the kiss of death’ and can be fatal to humans. COMM: It’s thought the mongoose was trying to ward the snake away from its burrow close by. COMM: Mongooses is known to eat rodents, birds and snakes, so this large black mamba was bigger than the average lunch for the little carnivore. MAN: That is awesome.
