New Delhi (Sputnik): Beware of Cobras: The deadliest serpents, king cobra are the longest of all venomous snakes and most poisonous ones in the planet. The south Asian species can literally 'stand up', lifting a third of its body off the ground to you in the eye. Sadly, the amazing creatures are vulnerable to extinction.

One huge king cobra surely gave rescuers a tough time! A deadly 10-ft cobra hauled into a temple in the Indian state of Odisha and it took at least four people to control the giant venomous snake.

The forest officials and People for Animals (PFA) were alerted after a devotee in the Jarada Jagannath Temple raised the alarm after seeing the snake. In the video from the rescue site, the snake can be seen putting up a fight before its capture and charging at people. The snake was finally rescued after an operation which lasted about two-minutes.
