This is a video from drought-stricken Southern India of a 12-foot king cobra that was so thirsty it abandoned its usually antisocial tendencies and slithered into a nearby town looking for water. Amazingly, the folks who caught it let it drink from a plastic bottle before relocating the monster. Personally, I would have kissed it hoping it turned into a princess. Or a prince. Or just a wealthy merchant -- I don't care, just somebody with a lot of money to give me. Could you imagine if you were bartending and a thirsty cobra slithered into the bar? What are you doing here, pal, didn't you read the sign? "No sir, I'm a snake." Oh, well it says NO THIRSTY COBRAS ALLOWED. "And what if I told you I'm not a cobra, but a harmless garter snake?" I'd tell you I wouldn't know the difference, pull up a seat, first round's on me.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Pavel, who would have just rolled the snake a water bottle and told it to figure it out on its own.
