This is the amusing moment a clever cobra gulped water from a rubber hose during a hot afternoon in Thailand.
The thirsty serpent was seen wrapping its mouth over the hose to gulp down some of the water coming out from the mains in Bangkok on April 2 as temperatures reached 37 degrees Celsius.
House owner Anand Taduten said: ‘I was shocked to discover the cobra there. I was about to do the dishes. Luckily, it did not attack us and only cared about drinking.’
Thailand is entering its hottest period of the year with temperatures reaching as high as 40 degrees Celsius on some days. Regular rainstorms usually start in May or June.
