A family was shocked to discover a deadly 4-foot-long cobra hiding beneath their gas cooker in southern India on April 3. A family member wandered into the kitchen in the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu state at around 3 am local time and spotted the venomous reptile emerging from shelves beneath the cooker. A snake catcher came to their home and located the cobra hiding in the shelving unit. He managed to remove the hissing reptile safely and placed it in a plastic tub. It was later released in a nearby forest.
