Feb. 17 (UPI) -- An Indian man came to the rescue of a thirsty -- and potentially deadly -- cobra by pouring water from a bottle into the venomous snake's mouth.
The video, shared by Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda, shows the man, believed to be an IFS official, gently holding the water bottle while the cobra drinks from the opening.
The man touches the cobra with his other hand to keep the snake steady and calm while drinking.
"Love and water. Two best ingredients of life," Nanda tweeted.
