This video will make your heart race. 

According to TODAY, a video was posted to Facebook by Rojas Montecinos Evy on June 26 - and later on Youtube late last week - of a mama rat saving her baby from a predatory snake. 

The snake appears to hold the baby rat in his mouth while the mother frantically trails along behind him, trying to trip him up. 

SOMEHOW, the snake is startled by this and drops the baby to freedom.
