This is my turf. You cross it at your own peril.

A.N. PRASANNA of Karnataka Photo News captures a telling picture of a dog, a puppy and a cobra at Dantinaval near Chikamagalur. When the mother found the cobra moving towards her puppies, she stopped it. The snake didn’t understand why she had been stopped in its tracks. After an hour-long impasse, the mother apparently took the cobra in its mouth and threw it away.
