A snake rescuer, called Bhagesh Bhagwat, got the shock of his life when he witnessed a three-foot-long cobra regurgitating a plastic wrap.

Bhagwat rescued the snake after it had got stuck in the ceiling of a house in Mumbai, India. 

Bhagwat said he saw something hanging out of the snake’s mouth when he first saw the reptile.

Keeping in mind the safety of the snake, Bhagwat managed to hold its tail and brought the snake to the ground.

"I was shocked that as soon as it reached the ground, it began regurgitating something from its mouth and within seconds, I realized that it had ingested a large amount of plastic wrap that it was now throwing up," he said.

He later released the snake in the wild.

Santosh Shinde, President of S.A.R.R.P ( Spreading awareness on reptiles and rehabilitation programme ) said that he has never come across a case like this of a snake swallowing plastic. Meanwhile, Mumbai authorities have recently put a ban on plastic.
