The snake reacted to the attempt of a snake rescuer to kiss her by biting the man in the mouth, having ended up in the hospital.
Residents of Bhadravati City in the Indian state of Karnataka spotted a snake and called a local snake hunter, Sonu, to capture the reptile.
The man had no problem capturing the venomous snake, then decided to impress the crowd that had gathered to see the pro in action, write Newsflare portal.
Sonu made an attempt to kiss the snake, but the snake responded, as might be expected, with an instant bite on the man's lips. The captor began to bleed, but managed to keep calm and put the venom in a cloth bag.
After releasing the reptile in the nearby woods, the Indian was taken to hospital. According to one of the witnesses, Krishna Kumar, Sonu wanted to repeat one of the popular tricks he had seen on Youtube. "But instead of kissing the reptile on the back of the head, he kissed him on the front and paid for it," she said.
