Most people would take a few steps backwards if they came across a four-and-a-half-metre-long cobra. This man‚ however‚ grabbed it by the tail.
The remarkable moment occurred when a snake expert rescued a massive king cobra from a stream in Kerala‚ India‚ on November 4 2018.
Residents of a village near Thiruvananthapuram spotted the 4.57-metre reptile and a snake handler came to their rescue.
The man doesn’t flinch as he pulls the snake from the stream – not even when the reptile turns around to face him.
He eventually carries the snake to an open piece of land where a bewildered crowd cautiously surrounds him.
It’s unclear what happened to the cobra afterwards.
