Moment ‘deadly’ cobra slithers up to couple relaxing on patio

Footage captures the terrifying moment a “deadly” cobra slithered over to a couple sitting on a patio.

In the video, the snake can be seen approaching the pair, before it’s spotted by the person sitting closest to it - just inches away.

Unsurprisingly, the man tries to scoot out of the cobra’s path, before jumping to his feet.

The creature, apparently scared off by the sudden movement, slithers away.

The incident was captured in the city of Songkhla, southern Thailand.
