We’re sure you’ve seen your share of animal crossings, but you haven’t seen traffic stop for anything like the serval in this video.
It may look like your neighbor’s overgrown house cat got out again, but the serval is no domesticated kitty.
The big-eared beauty has the longest legs relative to body size of all the cats, which are useful in chasing prey in the African savannah. This serval, however, is having himself a grand time playing with a puff adder that wants nothing more than to cross the road in peace.
This is not your typical cat video:
The game of cat and… er… snake carries on despite the traffic that is stuck waiting for the pair to clear the road. The serval is oblivious to the waiting cars as it continues to play with its prey like a kitten chasing a string of yarn.
I’m sure the spectacle made for quite the story for the drivers and an intriguing display for the one who caught it on video.
