In Kalali, Vadodara, a giant Indian cobra has been recorded slowly eating a five-foot-long Russell’s viper.
The Wildlife SOS team — a nonprofit charity that rescues and rehabilitates wildlife across India — was called to Madhu Farm when a six-foot Indian cobra was found eating its huge five-foot viper dinner after a fight between the two snakes. The team carefully removed the cobra from the farm and released it back into its natural environment.
The Wildlife SOS, in partnership with the Gujarat Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, found the cobra eating the viper by first slowly swallowing its head. Both snakes were engaged in a brutal fight.

The clip shows the cobra using a very special trait that snakes possess, which allows them to swallow prey much larger than their heads, such as a large rodent or, in this case, another huge snake.
Indian cobras are found in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and southern Nepal. They can grow up to six and a half feet in length, and they generally prey on mammals as adults, and amphibians, small snakes, and lizards when young. The color of their skin varies according to habitat, ranging from black with white stripes to a uniform brown-gray.

The incident took place in Ravtha Road (RDT), Kota Division. The two-meter-long cobra had no effect on train service on the busiest segment.
