Cobra-in-cupboard shock

KUALA TERENGGANU - A bad odour led a family in Batu Rakit near here to a shocking find a two-metre cobra was in the midst of eating a lizard in a cupboard.

School teacher Karimah Abdul Karim, 31, and her family had caught a strong stench at their home in Kampung Darat at about 3pm on Friday and traced it to a cupboard.

She and her siblings were shocked to see the cobra swallowing the lizard. "We quickly contacted the Civil Defence Department, which came and took away the reptile," she said.

Terengganu civil defence director Lt Kol Kamal Mokhtar advised the people to be wary of snakes entering their homes, especially when it floods.
