Pregnant cobra lays eggs on busy road in southern India

This is the stunning moment a cobra lays eggs on a busy street in South India.

As shocked people watched, the pregnant snake laid 14 eggs in less than an hour.

A teacher in Maddur town in Karnataka spotted the cobra inside his home on March 20.

He called Prasanna Kumar, a local snake expert, to come and rescue the snake.

As Prasanna came, the cobra made its way to the street in front of the home and started laying eggs.

Prasanna caught the snake later and released it in a nearby forest. He took the eggs with him and said the snakelings would be released after they hatch.
