Rare albino cobra hatchling rescued in south India
A rare albino cobra hatchling was rescued in south India on October 7 after being discovered in a drain.
The snake rescuer, V Selvam, also known as Chellaa, was called after reports of the white-skinned cobra came from Velisemmandalam in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu.
After retrieving the snake, Chellaa identified it as a hatchling only a few days old, and was likely separated from its nest and dropped in the drain.
It was eventually decided that the hatchling would be released into the nearby forest.
