A reptile expert had a narrow escape from a king cobra – the world’s longest venomous snake – while trying to capture it.
Footage shared by news agency ANI on Twitter showed two snake catchers near a water body, trying to capture the huge serpent.
One of the snake catchers managed to get hold of the king cobra’s tail. However, the aggressive snake struck back in an attack so surprising that the other snake catcher lost his balance and fell.
The two snake catchers were then seen scrambling to capture the king cobra before it could bite.
