Aggressive nightlife of the Kangaroo Rat | Attenborough | BBC

Sleeping all day and only getting active at night, the Mojave Desert’s Kangaroo Rat is an intriguing little mammal. David Attenborough entertainingly fails to entice him out of his burrow but when a snake comes to pay a visit, our little rodent gets a bit aggressive. Entertaining clip from BBC’s Life of Mammals.
