This is the moment an enormous king cobra was captured in the Indian state of Odisha after it was seen trying to enter a home.

The 16-foot (4.9-metre) snake was spotted trying to crawl into a house in Khandabuda village in Mayurbhanj District on Sunday.

Staff from the Forest Department arrived, caught the enormous serpent and managed to place it in a wooden box.

The reptile was later relocated in Similipal National Park.

The king cobra is the world's longest venomous snake. Despite its fearsome reputation, it avoids confrontation with humans when possible.
