Adorable animals have a way of melting our hearts, but they can also bring out their feisty side when you least expect it -- resulting in some pretty epic footage.

Off the coast of California, a dramatic tangle between two octopuses proved they're not ones to be messed with. A python in South Africa decided to eat a porcupine -- and it paid the ultimate price. And a hawk's attempt to snag an owl didn't quite go the way it expected.

One thing is for sure, these brawling creatures know a thing or two about breaking the Internet.

Watch the video above for a look at the top viral animal battles in 2015.
