I am seriously wondering if the guys in the video below are ‘professional snake handlers’, because from what I can see, it’s strictly ‘amateur hour’. When handling one of the deadliest snakes in the world, the situation calls for professionalism and extreme safety measures. It is NO PLACE for amateurs, or fools, because ONE BITE from a King Cobra can have deadly consequences.
According to Wikipedia:
It preys chiefly on other snakes and occasionally on some other vertebrates, such as lizards and rodents. It is a dangerous snake that has a fearsome reputation in its range, although it typically avoids confrontation with humans when possible. The king cobra is a prominent symbol in the mythology and folk traditions of Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Myanmar.
