Chandigarh, September 22

Snakes can be scary and encountering a king cobra can make chills run down the spine.

CEO and founder of Zoho Corporation Sridhar Vembu has tweeted two pictures of a 12-foot king cobra that visited him recently.

In one of the photos, Vembu and a group of forest rangers are seen holding the snake.

He captioned it, “A rare 12 feet long King Cobra paid us a visit”, adding that, “Our awesome local forest rangers arrived and caught it for release in the nearby hills. Here is the brave me attempting to touch it. A very auspicious day!”

Late in 2019, before the outbreak of the Covid, Vembu had moved to Mathalamparai, a village near Tenkasi in the picturesque Western Ghats in southern Tamil Nadu.
