King cobras are some of the most feared in the reptile kingdom and most humans fear them so much that they barely go near them. An Indian village however dealt better than most when the snake came slithering towards them in search of water and they rightly fed it water too.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, villagers from the Kaiga town in North Karnataka were left surprised when a snake came into the village recently. The snake on the other hand was seen to be frantically looking for water to drink after it couldn’t find any outside. The village which has been hit by a drought is facing severe water crisis and does not have a lot of water left. Although, it seems to be that the animals are also affected by the water crisis and the snake was one such instance.

The 12-foot snake was immediately given to drink water from a bottle by a villager who was cautious to not get to friendly, given its nature. While one is seeing holding the tail in case it springs onto the person giving the water, another was seen waiting with a snake catcher if things got worse.
