Motorcyclist left terrified after tiny snake takes refuge inside his helmet
Bibhuti Bhusan Sahu, a resident of a town near Bhubaneswar in eastern India, went to his room to fetch his helmet to go to work on March 30.
He saw a small snake crawling in the room.
Before he could react, it climbed a table and then crawled under the helmet and vanished.
Bibhuti tried but could not find the snake inside the helmet.
In terror, he called the Snake Helpline, which sent a volunteer Ashis Behera to the spot.
At first, Ashis also failed to spot the snake but after Bibhuti requested him repeatedly, he again examined the helmet thoroughly.
This time he was astonished to see the snake hiding up between the inside shell of the helmet and the cushion padding.
