A newborn marine iguana had to undergo the test of its life when it had to escape a horde of snakes.
Evidently, this is a rule in the animal kingdom. When a marine iguana is born, the first thing it has to do is outrun a horde of snakes on its way to find its home. It is a way to prove its strength and determination to succeed.
Thankfully, the marine iguana in this video survived the race and his skills are applaudable.
After getting introduced to the first snake, it was able to outrun that one but the further he ran, the more snakes emerged.
At one point, it looked like the iguana was losing the battle when a few snakes gathered and tried to literally squeeze the life out of it. But somehow, the determined iguana wiggled out of the situation and was able to save itself.
Watching animals is often a great way to teach ourselves a lesson and if this iguana has thought us anything, it is to never give up even though it looks like your enemies have overcome. You will still come out victorious as long as you are determined.
