Four lions were left with their tails between their legs when a mongoose bravely took on the predators. Despite being under two feet tall, the aggressive mongoose growled at the felines and even bit one on the nose. The shocking fight, which was photographed in 2011 but has just been released, began in the Masaai Mara National Park, Kenya, when photographer Jerome Guillaumot came across four young lions surrounding the terrified marsh mongoose. The lions chased the mongoose into a hole in the ground but the small animal reemerged to fight the predators once again before running for cover.

Jack McEvoy was competing in a 1500m steeplechase race in Massapequa Park, New York, when he tripped over one of the hurdles. Unfortunately for McEvoy, all that was on the other side of the hurdle was a large section of water. “Needed a good time in this race for a seed for counties…Didn’t quite get it,” writes McEvoy.
