A king cobra was found inside a refrigerator inside a home in Telangana
Hyderabad, Telangana: With temperatures climbing 40-42 degrees in several parts of Telangana, it is so hot you would want to coil up inside the refrigerator to cool off. That is precisely what a snake that was feeling the heat in Sircilla town did. A 4-foot-long king cobra got inside a house in Sanjeevaiah Nagar on Tuesday and decided to chill inside the cool interiors of a fridge.
The owner's daughter who opened the fridge to get some cold water screamed in shock to see the reptile sitting inside. A snake-catcher was called for help who pulled the snake out of the fridge and carried it away in a box.
A similar incident happened in Cape Town earlier this week when a shopper was horrified to find a python comfortably resting in the chiller section of a supermarket fridge.

The woman was getting some curd from the fridge when she accidentally pulled out the 12-foot python. The cold-blooded creature was apparently almost in hibernation state due to the cold temperatures.
