Poisonous wheat cobra pulled from under bike seat in southern India
This is the moment a poisonous snake was pulled out from under the seat of a motorbike in southern India.
Unnerving footage from August 3 in the Cuddalore District of Tamilnadu, shows a local snake handler open the seat to reveal the hiding place of a hissing, 4-foot-long wheat cobra.
The snake handler then coaxed the dangerous reptile into a plastic tub to be later released into a nearby woodland area.
According to local media, Mani, a resident of Ramakrishna Nagar, parked his scooter at the front of his house when he saw a snake crawling into his motorbike.
Scared, Mani immediately sought the help of the Fire and Rescue Department, who ordered a snake handler to the spot.
