Ramesh was disturbed by sudden unusual noise and woke up to find a huge king cobra trying to pull the tail of a monitor lizard with its mouth. He asked a local Snake Helpline volunteer for help. The Snake Helpline volunteer rushed to spot. But when the volunteer reached the spot the monitor lizard was lying on the floor and the king cobra had taken refuge under the roof of the house. The volunteer then very carefully rescued the 10.5-ft-long king cobra and released it in the jungle far away from the locality.
