A Moving Incident of Commensalism Between Humans And A Cobra

Have you ever seen a cobra drink water from a bottle? It happened. It might be shouldn’t have. Wildlife generally does not like human confrontation and even not interested in whether we offer them water or not. On Thursday,  a video went viral on social media in which villagers gave up their own water to stop the 12ft King Cobra dying of thirst.

In the village of southwestern India, a cobra appeared from hiding in search of water. To quench its thirst. 

The snake was offered water in a plastic bottle by a local villager. The snake can be seen in the image drinking the water as it warily keeps its eyes on the villagers.
