Sometimes you have to be your own hero, as one cat in Saudi Arabia proves. The kitty became stuck in a flash flood and nearly drowned, but after a few attempts, it was able to leap up to safety.
Next, when a cobra in India became tangled in a fishnet, a local snake wrangler was called upon to come to the rescue. The untangling took a few minutes, and the snake sure was thirsty after it was all over! Have you ever seen a snake drink water like that?!
