“One tough mom,” is the phrase that the internet used to describe a mother hen as she fought a fierce battle with a cobra to save her chicks in a video that has surfaced on social media. Susanta Nanda of the Indian Forest Service tweeted the 51-second clip on Thursday and it has already collected over 13,000 views.

The cobra slithered inside the enclosure as the hen made a brave attempt to block its path. In the meantime, the chicks fluttered away. The hen, however, did not concede defeat and continued pecking the cobra until her chicks moved out of the enclosure safely.

The snake, meanwhile, also tried to bite the hen but she managed to escape with her chicks.

“Battle Royal. When a mother fights to save the children, it is battle royal. Brave mom saves her chicks fighting a cobra,” Susanta Nanda said in the caption of her post.

Mom’s love and instincts will never give up, till their last breath!

Did the snake finally get out of the pit or did it manage to gulp a few chicks from this lot?
