A mother’s love knows no boundaries, and that’s even true if you’re a rat!

A video posted to Facebook shows a mother rat fighting off a snake who snatched one of her babies.

The rat chases behind the slippery serpent, and bites it until the snake finally lets it go of her baby. Even after her baby is free, she chases the snake away before returning to pick up the tiny rat.

Watch the incredible video above.
