> In Sik, Kedah, a family’s joyful Raya gathering turned uneasy after a shed snakeskin was found in an air conditioner of their home, reported Berita Harian.

The snakeskin was found after one of the family members noticed a weird noise coming from their air conditioner and, fearing the worst, called the local fire department for help.

The department immediately sent a team of seven firefighters to assist, which then found the snakeskin but failed to locate the reptile owner of the shed skin.

“Firefighters continued to search all rooms of the house to look for the snake, but the reptile was gone,” Sik Fire and Rescue Department chief Zulkhairi Mat Tanjil said.

Zulkhairi noted that the skin likely belonged to a highly venomous and deadly Monocled cobra.

He then advised people to be wary of damp and cool places around their homes, as reptiles prefer these areas during the current hot weather in the northern parts of the peninsula.

“Always try to keep your homes clean and be aware of your surroundings this festive season.

“Do not hesitate to call the nearest fire station or 999 if you need help,” he said.
