Thirsty King Cobra drinks from water bottle

A large King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah), caught in a drought has been filmed drinking peacefully from a water bottle. Villagers from Karnataka’s Kaiga township offered the thirsty snake a drink, when it entered the village and headed for the water dispenser.

King cobras are the worlds largest venomous snakes, reaching lengths of 4m+ and have a powerful neurotoxic venom. Unless threatened, they rarely pose a threat to humans, as this video shows.
