Touching footage shows a kind animal rescuer giving water to a thirsty king cobra after it was found near a family’s home.

The venomous snake gulped down the liquid that was trickling from a bottle being poured by the rescuer.

Snake wrangler Thanakon Cheunok said the wild snake had been captured near a residential property. They then put it in the box but it became hot so they gave it a refreshing drink of water while they were working with it before returning it to the wild.

He said: ‘We always make sure that the snakes under our care are healthy. It must be very thirsty after its ordeal.’
