Thirsty Cobra Drinking From Stranger's Water Bottle Is All Of Us Blackout Drunk


Have you ever been so thirsty you actually stopped to have your thirst quenched by a total stranger's water bottle? Me neither.

That likely has to do with the fact we've never been as parched as the deadly cobra seen scouring the dusty trails of New Delhi for any kind of moisture.


In a new viral video making its rounds on the internet, we're introduced to a 12-foot-long king cobra. Now, this isn't just any old king cobra -- this is an extremely dehydrated king cobra in need of water.

The video description reads,

The 12-foot-long cobra was rescued from a village in Kaiga township - where it has strayed, apparently looking for water. 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.

With New Dehli experiencing a lengthy drought, the cobra had been spotted slithering around a village looking for water. It wasn't until a generous rescue worker with a water bottle came along that the cobra was able to escape death.


Wait just a second... That... That sounds exactly like us when we get too wasted and our life-saving friends have to force-feed us back to soberness with TONS of liquid survival.

This snake can totally relate!

See the moment a generous rescue worker saved a deadly, dehydrated king cobra's life with a water bottle.

Ladies and gentlemen, THAT man is a hero! He single-handedly saved Mr. King Cobra's life (literally).

Similar to cobras, most of us turn into very, very unusually desperate creatures when we're almost dead and water is our last and only hope.

I guess the only difference here is this particular snake is still dangerous AF no matter how thirsty it is. Props to these brave dudes!
