Thirsty cobra politely drinks from water bottle

If you were to see a thirsty cobra on the street, you would probably run the other way, right?

A deadly drought in southern India left one snake a little less vicious than usual. The serpent, who could typically kill a human, became rather friendly with one in order to get a drink.

According to the description of a video uploaded to YouTube, the cobra wandered to the Kaiga township along the Arabian Sea in search of water.

A wildlife rescue worker approached the deadly snake and offered in a bottle of water -- something that would terrify the typical person.

Then, the snake did the unthinkable ... it drank politely from the water bottle while being held by a rescue worker.
