A deadly cobra escaped its enclosure in Ocala, Florida, and is now missing.

The incident was reported to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Monday.

Residents in the area have been notified that a deadly cobra is at large, and the search for the snake remains in effect.

According to CNN, authorities have warned the venom from this particular species of cobra is extremely toxic. If an individual were to be bitten, they would need to seek emergency medical care immediately.

It is believed the owner of the snake did have a permit for the cobra, however, authorities are investigating whether or not the snake’s enclosure was adequate.
