Stomp contributorSanchindra was hiking with his wife at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve when they spotted what they believed was a fallen branch.
Not thinking much about it, they stepped closer towards it but was suddenly stopped by a passer-by who recognised that it was actually a king cobra.
Sachindra told Stomp about the incident that happened on Sunday (Nov 29) at 5pm, and shared his relief that someone had alerted them before it was too late.
"My wife and I had never visited Bukit Timah Nature Reserve before. Since it was our first time trekking there, we were excited to enjoy the nature around us," Sachindra shared.
