Mothers will always do whatever it takes to care of their babies, no matter what kind of animal we're talking about.

In this video, a garden snake went after a bunny when the bunny's mother sprung -- or hopped -- into action and attacked the slithery reptile.

And it's not just some slight altercation, either. No, the rabbit means business and goes on the offensive, while the snake doesn't exactly back down. It's like a heavyweight bout in the animal kingdom.

The intense battle that shows just how far mothers will go when protecting their little ones, human or not.
