Black Banded Sea Snake With Venom 10x Deadlier Than A Cobra Eats A Moray Eel Alive

 

Nature is cruel. Most creatures are born into this world only to be eaten by something bigger on the food chain. What makes this clip so nuts is these aren’t typically two species coming to fisticuffs down on the coral reef.
