A new video shows a Cobra hiding in a Honda Activa. It was eventually rescued by a snake handler.
As more and more natural spaces are being damaged and reduced, the human-animal conflict is rising. Recently, multiple instances of snakes hiding in vehicles have been reported. This can be a scary experience for any vehicle owner. Now, a new video shows a Cobra snake hiding in a Honda Activa. Snakes are cold-blooded animals. When the environment is cold, they seek warm places and often end up sheltering in vehicle engines. It is possible that the Cobra snuck into Activa as it was raining.

As you can see in the above Instagram video by jobinkmani_jantm, a Honda Activa looks quite normal at first glance. However, you can see a snake’s tail hanging out of the front cover. The owner acted responsibly and contacted a snake handler who safely rescued the cobra. As you can see, the snake handler removes the front cover to reveal a full-size cobra wrapped inside. Then, he chooses a proper tool to pull the snake out. Initially, the snake slipped and coiled itself, but the rescuer managed to pick the snake in his second attempt.
It is to be noted that Cobra is an extremely venomous snake. They can easily kill a person. If spotted, you should call a professional and not engage with them directly. Also, the forest department can take legal action against you for harming or killing these creatures. In this case, the snake handler didn’t panic when the Cobra tried to escape the first time. Eventually, he safely laced the dangerous snake in a sack. We hope the Cobra was relocated to its natural habitat. While most such snakes in India are non-venomous, several users have seen King Cobra in their cars.

Why Snakes Often Find Shelter in Two-Wheelers?
Snakes occasionally seek refuge inside two-wheelers for a variety of reasons. One of the primary factors is the warmth generated by the engine and exhaust pipes. Snakes are ectothermic, meaning they rely on external sources of heat to regulate their body temperature. The warmth radiating from a recently used two-wheeler provides an attractive environment for these cold-blooded creatures, especially during cooler seasons or nights. Additionally, the confined spaces within the engine compartments or under the seats of motorcycles and scooters offer a sense of security and protection from predators. Snakes are naturally drawn to sheltered spots that make them feel safe.
Furthermore, the vibrations and sounds produced by running engines may also discourage potential predators and deter human interference, making these vehicles ideal hiding places for snakes. As a result, it’s not uncommon for unsuspecting riders or owners to discover these uninvited guests when they go to start their two-wheelers. To prevent such encounters and ensure the safety of both humans and reptiles, it’s essential to take precautions and periodically inspect and clean the engine compartments and undercarriages of parked vehicles in snake-prone areas.
