Henrik Mellberg kept a pet king cobra, in a terrarium in his New York City apartment. In 1936, Indiana Jones came to meet Mellberg, but was caught by agents of the Ahnenerbe who tried to threaten him by placing him near the opened terrarium. However, a distraction from a maid allowed Jones to dodge, and the cobra bit one of the agents.
