Crimson-crested Woodpecker vs Olive Whipsnake

This Crimson-crested Woodpecker's mother-love is just no match for the three-metre Olive Whipsnake invading her nest to feed on her eggs.

Time after time she attacked despite its fangs ripping into her.

But she finally had to leave her brood to die - with her own gored body then a target for other predators by Peru's Yarapa River.
