A villager in India who heard his hens clucking loudly in alarm discovered a live cobra stealing their eggs.
When Nabaghana Behera, a resident of Pipili area in the outskirts of Bhubaneswar, Odisha, went to check his poultry, he saw the cobra hurriedly swallowing the eggs.
A snake helpline volunteer, Biranchi Narayana Acharjya, quickly arrived on the spot and took control of the situation.
The four-foot long cobra had swallowed five eggs, which formed a line of lumps in its stomach.
As soon as Biranchi caught it, the cobra regurgitated all the eggs it had swallowed one by one.
See what happens in the video above.
