A thrilling video has emerged showing a king cobra drinking water from a bottle. The video - shot in Southern India - shows a daring wildlife rescue worker offering water to the snake. The 12 feet long cobra was rescued from a village in Kaiga township - where it has strayed, apparently looking for water.

Even though it is the longest venomous snake in the world, the king cobra avoids contact with human kind, and vice versa of course. But one wildlife rescue worker approached the cobra after it was caught, getting much closer than any human would dare and offered the animal some water in a bottle. The snake, which measured 12 feet in length, also did the unthinkable - it got closer to a human without a vicious intent and drank the water that it was offered.

Some parts of southern India have been hit by drought, making water scarce. Wildlife officials say the drought has severely affected wild animals in the region. One of the officers in the video has said that snakes entering human settlements in not an uncommon sight in the summer heat. In fact, whenever the locals spot a cobra in their settlements, the first thing they do is offer it water.
