Don't mess with squirrels in Texas

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Apparently you don’t want to mess with Texas squirrels.

The U.S. Department of the Interior posted this picture taken from Guadalupe Mountains National Park’s vault, and shows a squirrel taking on a snake.

Rock squirrels eat mostly plant material, but they’ll also eat bird eggs, lizards and you guessed it, snakes.

Apparently a park ranger heard a racket and recorded a battle between the two animals. The squirrel came out on top, devouring most of the snake, bones and all, down to the last two inches.
