Full cobra regurgitates seven eggs to lighten its weight to avoid snake catcher

It's too full to move!

A stunning moment a cobra regurgitating seven eggs after raiding a chicken coop has been captured near a henhouse in Kerala, India.

The snake slithered to a henhouse, killed a chicken and swallowed all its eggs before slowing down. 

But a snake catcher, Sujith VP, soon arrived and the reptile realised it needed to move. It could escape quickly only by emptying its stomach to lighten its weights. 

The animals finally vomited seven eggs and escape rapidly.

"When a snake slithers on the ground it's difficult for it to get away with heavy food like eggs inside it," Sujith said. "In this instance, the cobra wanted to escape from the public view, so it puked the eggs fast."
