Indonesia snake catcher faces 10-foot king cobra, removes 40 eggs

This is the terrifying moment a snake catcher in Indonesia removed a 10-foot-long king cobra and its 40 eggs.

In footage filmed on Sunday and Monday (March 1-2) in Agam district, West Sumatra province, Indonesia the rescuers come face to face with the reptile troubling residents.

Evacuation took place quickly and rescuers are seen place the eggs into a sack.

"We expect it to be around 4-years-old, male sex, 10-feet-long," said Waldi, B-Reptanic officer.

Cobras and other snakes have increasingly been found lurking in residential areas in Indonesia, the Jakarta Post reported last December, heightening public fears.
