What’s the first thing that pops to mind when you hear the word “roadrunner”? Most of us immediately start thinking about that colorful cartoon character that made us laugh during our childhood years with its gimmicks meant to trick the coyote.
We’ve all had fun watching the cartoon, but in reality, the roadrunner is not exactly the cute bird the cartoon might let you believe it is. Let’s just say that the real roadrunner is as tough as it is fast.
Not many people know this, but the roadrunner is one of very few animals that are quick enough to prey upon rattlesnakes. This means that although this bird was born to run, it can do very well when it comes to fighting other animals for food. Also, it can protect itself even if it chooses not to run from confrontation.
But don’t just take my word for it! Take a look at what happens when a roadrunner and a snake come face to face and engage into a battle for life and death.
This is definitely not something you see every day, so make sure to take a good look and watch the whole video to find out who made it out alive from the confrontation.
