    Many people on social media were amazed to watch a pregnant snake laying eggs on a street in the Indian state of Karnataka. The video was filmed by a school teacher, and since being posted on social media, it’s been attracting gazes.

    New Delhi (Sputnik): The snake was discovered at a school teacher's house in Maddur town in the Mandya district of the Indian state of Karnataka.
