Cobra, Mongoose Fight To The Death (VIDEO)

In this remarkable video from National Geographic, a cobra snake and mongoose face each other down in a duel that only one will walk -- or slither -- away from.

Southern India sets the stage for this epic showdown between an Indian gray mongoose and king cobra. The snake has the ability to kill a human in 30 minutes, according to National Geographic.

Who will survive -- the hungry mammal or the venomous snake?
