    New Delhi (Sputnik): India’s coastal state Goa is a tourist magnet and is widely perceived by locals as their own version of Las Vegas for its stellar nightlife, eclectic seafood and white sand beaches. Apart from the scenic beauty, the state is also blessed with abundant flora and fauna.

    A sneaky reptile found its way onto the rooftop of a house in Goa and camouflaged itself under the tiles of the roof. Soon after the appearance of the venomous cobra, an alarm was raised to the forest department and a forest official from Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary rescued the snake single-handedly and with his bare hands.

    The viral video first shows the forest official struggling to find the cobra from under the tiles and lifting it with the help of a wooden stick. The rescuer then grabs the snake by its tail and gently directs it into a cloth bag.
