A cobra’s presence near the meerkat colony causes the whole gang to jump into action and defend their turf.
Although this cobra could easily kill one of these mammals, the meerkats show great courage. These petite members of the mongoose family fearlessly resist the attacks of the cobra, and return with strikes.
Meerkats will often encounter dangerous and venomous creatures on the plains of the Kalahari, including scorpions, spiders, centipedes, and snakes.
While these guys are immune to certain types of venom, such as that of scorpion, bites from venomous snakes such as puff adders and cape cobras generally prove fatal.
