This is a really interesting story some of our more mature (=old) members may remember. Disney's nature films were all the rage back in the 50s when families could finally afford TVs, and "The Living Desert" was one of those great films. The footage of the kangaroo rat abusing the sidewinder was amazing stuff -- and now a grad-student in San Diego is studying it using trail cams. ENJOY!

I remember seeing similar footage of this years ago. It still amazes me watching how quick those little fellas are.
