A deadly snake came out of hiding in a village in India in search of water — and residents there fed it.

A video shows villagers with reptile wrangling equipment slowly approaching the extremely venomous cobra. One offers it water from a bottle he is holding, and the video shows the snake taking a drink.

The venom from the snake is so potent it could kill 20 humans.
