A five-year-old Indian Cobra was recently injured by a JCB machine and left with severe wounds to its abdomen.
Given the fact that this species holds a very important place in Indian culture and mythology, it is no wonder that considerable efforts were made to save the animal's life.
Thus, the people on the construction site where the cobra was injured called five snake catchers, and they in turn took the snake to Dr. Hemant Jain.
After a 45-minute-long surgery, the animal's abdomen was sewn back using 37 stitches. Apparently, the seriousness of the wound made it necessary to use these many stitches.
Is it expected that the snake will make a full recovery within the next 4-5 days and then be released back into the wild.
