A viral video featuring a man offering water to a cobra is doing rounds on social media, almost three years after it first surfaced online. The old video gathered netizens’ attention this afternoon again after it was shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda.
The video captures a forest official sitting in front of a snake holding a plastic water bottle in his hand. As he gently moves the bottle towards the snake, the snake laps up the offered water quickly.
Sharing the video on his twitter account, IFS Susanta Nanda wrote, “Love & water... Two best ingredients of life”.
