Snakes are often seen as dangerous reptiles who are ready to jump on you whenever they feel intimidated. So, when snakes get such a bad wrap, would you dare go close to one to feed it some water? Well, some of us would.
Now, most of us quick-wits would look for a container or make a puddle of water so that the reptile can quench its thirst whenever it wants to. However, this man had other ideas.
In the video shared by IPS Susanta Nanda, a man is seen catching the snake’s attention and slowly feeding it water from a plastic water bottle. The man even goes the extra mile and supports the snake by putting a careful hand behind the reptile’s back while it drank the water.
The IPS shared the video and wrote in his caption, “Love & water... Two best ingredients of life.”
Many were touched by the moment. One such user wrote, “Beautiful.”
While another thought, “We are part of Prakriti... this is the epitome of trust for each other.”
One fellow shared how the video impacted them, “Got goosebumps!!”
“I was thinking of what might happen after the thirst is quenched?” wondered a cynic, sure that the friendly nature of the snake would only last until its thirst was quenched.
One user was worried that the video would send wrong messages to kids who would mindlessly try to imitate the doings of the viral video, “This outrageous to be shared. Just imagine a kid looking at this video tries this stunt. Just share animal videos on their own. Not human intervention.”
Another gentleman passed on sarcastic remarks after watching the ridiculous moment between the snake and the man, “I congratulate you. I would not do that, but congratulations, I lean more towards kittens and puppies; I include birds.”
On watching the video, one user was concerned about the snake's well-being as they pointed out that snakes do not drink water while standing up straight, “Snakes drink water but not like this. This is a wrong act. If you really love animals, leave them in the wild; they are better than us to live there happily.”
