Kulot and I were watching Caught In The Act 2, the Nat Geo series. The clip of a Mongoose about to be eaten by a Lion greets us, and this really is no surprise since the world has a way of getting the weak always in the stomach of the strong, it is just how it goes.
But something happened in the clip.
The tiny Mongoose actually fought the Lion, growl for growl, using everything there is that will buy him time till he gets to the burrows – and he actually wins, the prize, his life.
All this, because the Mongoose did not give up, and fought.
