A giant King Cobra slithered into a home in the Batu Pahat District of Johor, Malaysia, on June 18. A video uploaded by Facebook user Derrick Koh shows the animal hiding under a shelf outside an apartment before it climbs onto a nearby shoe rack. The snake then wraps itself around a door frame and enters the flat through a small window above.

Koh told Malaysian newspaper The Star that the cobra was nowhere to be found in the apartment and that members of the Fire and Rescue Department also couldn’t find it. He suspected the animal left through the back windows. He says that it was impossible to prevent the King Cobra to slither into the apartment; luckily, no one was home.

Koh told Storyful: “During the past three days and two nights, my family ate, watched movie, surfed the Internet and slept as usual. We would never have thought this snake would stay in my room. It had many opportunities to kill us, but it didn’t. Now to think of it, I feel like I escaped hell.”

King cobras, which are common on the region, can grow up to 19 feet in length and a single bite can kill an adult human in less than 30 minutes.
