Mothers are awesome. They're caring, loving and can do everything for the little ones. And I'm not only talking about amazing women, but also about all the mothers of the animal kingdom. Hens included.
Hens are known to adopt other chicks and care for them as if they were their own. Farmers have their hens adopt little chicks all the time. But sometimes hens are quick to adopt other animals as well.
Take a look at 10+ amazing mother hens and their tiny "babies". Which one of them surprised you the most?
When she sees her child in the mouth of a snake, she immediately attacks, pouncing and biting at the serpent’s tail despite it being five times as long as her.
As the animal slithers towards the undergrowth with the tiny baby in its jaws, there’s little chance of a happy ending for the rat family.
But miraculously, the snake is intimidated enough by the mother rat that it drops its meal and creeps away still hungry.
