New Delhi: A picture of a king cobra gulping down another cobra is the latest addition to the category of a scary thing, and has gone viral on the internet. The video has left internet users astonished who have been dropping all sorts of comments on it.
The incredible picture of the giant reptile feeding on the spectacle cobra was shared by Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan on Twitter. "Ophiophagus Hannah. A king cobra eating a spectacled cobra. They feed on lesser mortals," he wrote while sharing the picture.
"'Ophiophagus' is derived from Greek, meaning 'snake-eating' and hannah is derived from the name of tree-dwelling nymphs in Greek mythology. So king living true to its name," the IFS officer wrote, explaining the origin of the nomenclature.
