An albino monocled cobra bit a dog in Thousand Oaks on Monday, Sept. 1, 2014.

A search is underway in Thousand Oaks for an exotic and dangerous snake that attacked a dog.

The dog owner says an albino monocled cobra attacked her dog Sunday night near the 1300 block of Rancho Lane. The dog is expected to be OK.

The dog's owner was able to take pictures of the white snake. Animal Control officials were sent to the neighborhood to search for the cobra, which is said to be venomous and very dangerous.

Residents were advised not to approach or handle the snake in any way. The monocled cobra can be active at any time of day, but officials say it is most active during the morning or evening hours when it is cooler.
