HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Vietnamese police say they have seized 53 king cobras from a car in Hanoi and arrested the driver. Officer Dang Van Hanh said Monday the live snakes were taken to a wildlife rescue center near the capital where they treated before being released into the wild. King cobras are the worlds longest venomous snake, and grow up to 5.5 meters (18) feet. The meat of the king cobras is considered a delicacy by some in Vietnam, where hunting and trading the snakes is banned.
