A family of around 200 monocled baby cobras have sneakily escaped an unlicensed breeding firm in Nanjing, China, although 150 have been caught, 50 are still on the loose and a search party has been released to uncover the remaining 50, according to the Evening Standard website.

It is believed the serpents are highly poisonous and their venom could cause a fatal accident if left untreated.

The animals fled the area in August this year, however the authorities were only alerted to the news recently when a villager found the creature in his home.
