The Zoo of Hangzhou (Eastern China) gave live mice to snakes. When a snake started eating one of the mice, another one attacked. Looks like a very risky act of altruism, of apparent defense. The photo was released by the zoo. Can anyone comment on whether this is typical behaviour?

See I am on the fence on feeding live rodents to snakes - as I recall it is illegal to feed live mice in front of the public but if you have a snake that is refusing to eat, you can use live prey in an attempt to get it to eat - there are other animals that attack if one of their group members comes under attack so it would be possible x
