022514_mally_mall_launch_v2Next on WHEN ANIMALS ATTACK! -- rapper-producer Mally Mall's pet serval turns on him ... violently ... and the scary encounter was all caught on tape.

The video was shot last week inside Mall's Vegas compound -- his living room, specifically -- where his pet serval was having some kind of meltdown ... probably because it's a wild animal inside a house ... and Mall sprang into action.

You have to see how it all unfolds -- somehow, Mall calms the cat down ... but not without a couple scratches.

You'll recall ... Mall's the same guy who gave Justin Bieber that monkey a while ago. Pretty wild.
