Over 40 cobra babies rescued with mother and 12 eggs in eastern India

A mother cobra alongside her 42 babies and 12 eggs were successfully rescued from a house in the city of Bhadrak, eastern India.

Baby cobras are seen slithering along the ground, before being picked up and gathered into buckets by a rescue team.

Unnerving footage from June 26 also shows the mother cobra emerging from her hiding place underground. She is promptly hauled out and put into a bucket, completing the rescue efforts.
