This is the horrific moment a man froze in fear after a venomous 7-foot (2.1-meter) king cobra slipped into his shirt.
The frightening incident in India reportedly happened when the gardener decided to grab a quick bite to eat after lunch.
Terrifying footage showed the deadly snake crawling into the man’s shirt.
It then stuck out its venomous head to take a look before darting back in after being startled by horrified passers-by.
The panicked worker appears to be raising his arms in the air to protect himself from danger while awaiting instructions.
A colleague said, “Keep calm and don’t move.”
“How did that get in? Don’t yell, it will bite.”
While another colleague advises: “Don’t move your hands, it’s an angry snake and it can bite you.”
The man replied, “Oh my god, it’s around my back.”
One of his buddies tried to unbutton his shirt while the king cobra let out a goosebumps hiss to ward off any helpers.
His 2.10 meter tall body eventually fell out of his shirt and the man managed a remarkable escape.
The video went viral online and has been viewed more than 7,000 times.
“This is an extremely dangerous snake, what a bang for this guy,” said one Twitter user.
“This guy’s nerve control and maintaining peace with his body and mind is all talk,” added one.
“If that happened to me my heart would stop,” commented a second.
“This is an extremely dangerous snake — I think it’s a black cobra,” said another.
King cobras are found throughout Asia and are believed to be the world’s longest venomous snake.
The largest bird ever found was more than 19 feet long.
