One possibility that how people walk barefoot and get bitten by snakes in this video is that, the video has been filmed around madras crocodile bank... Which is also the place where irula community people live...they are well known for their snake catching and venom taking skills... These snakes could have been made venom less by them for the purpose of making awareness video...

50,000 DEAD INDIANS DEAD FROM SNAKE BITE MEANS INDIA SHOULD START CULLING ALL DEADLY SNAKES ON A VAST LARGE SCALE AND THE COMMENT THE COBRA STRIKE IS A HARMLESS SHAM IS A JOKE FROM A DEMENTED SNAKE LOVER!!! INDIA NEEDS TO ERADICATE ALL VENOMOUS SNAKES BECAUSE 50,000 DEAD PER YEAR IS AN UNACCEPTBLE DEATH RATE FOR A MODERN NATION. IN ADDITION SHOULD START A PROGRAM TO INCREASE MONGOOSE BREEDING PROGRAM TO KILL DEADLY SNAKES. IN ADDITION INDIA SHOULD START KILLING RATS WHICH WOIULD STARVE THE DEADLY SNAKES.

I have always been leery about traveling south of the equator or even warm climes a few hundred miles above the equator, because that's where the most venomous and poisonous creatures are located! They don't like the cold, an do not thrive in cold climates. Even ocean surface waters are warmer down there and harbor venomous marine life. But one needs to learn about what is dangerous where they live and how to avoid those creatures. It's carelessness that often is folly and results in bites that can be fatal. Most countries with those animals have antivenins and anti-toxins for them but you need to get to the ER to get help and that isn't always easy in remote places, so being careful to avoid them is primary!

Excellent video and very informative about India's venomous snakes. In general, snakes want nothing to do with humans and will usually try to get away. The Black Mamba of Africa is an exception, since it is large, aggressive and may chase you, but most snakes will be under cover except at dawn and dusk when they hunt most; they will seek shade in the heat of the day. Watch out when lifting something that they may be hiding under. Most bites can be prevented IF you learn about the snakes that are around you and stay out of their way.

Excellent film. Sad that this Western person didn't once mention that Sadus do make traditional antidotes that are an ancient Indian culture. Forewarned and forearmed is half the battle won. Brazil is the most sensible place, because the men of Brazil always carry an oral antidote in 2 small 100ml bottles when going out into any wildlife area. This is how Indios have influenced South American life, and have survived into the present.

The best video ever. I am visited by many Russell's viper, about 4-5 a month. What to do to avoid them? I live in a farm.

@Brent F I have heard sprinkling amonia or carbolic acid around your home might help too. Snakes seem to not like the smell and since snakes feel their environment with their tongue, it should work.
Brent F (2 months ago)
Narendra Kumar The best way to get rid of snakes is to take away their food source. I’m not sure what the main food source of the viper is, but as yoy said you live on a farm, it’s probably small rodents like mice or rats. If you managed to get rid of those, the vipers are probably not as keen to show up as they are now.

I have never liked snakes and I still don't to this day. However, I learn about snakes to keep my family safe. I lived in California most of my life and learned everything I could about snakes that lived in my area.. I moved to my daughter's guest house nine years ago. Her and her husband own eight acres in the woods. We live by water so I found there are water moccasins, copperheads, rattlesnakes and black snakes. Our neighbor told me not to kill the black snakes for they kill the poisonous snakes. I have three little grandchildren and my grandson loves to make forts down by the water and has seen several copperheads.

As a foreigner living in India for just over 2 years (rural area) i had my first direct encounter yesterday evening. Not only was i shocked as at first i thought my friends multi coloured beige scarf had fallen off her washing line and went forward to pick it up and then it raised its head...it was a snake, over 3ft long, i jumped back - i was very fortunate. i will NEVER do that again. i screamed - panicked and ran. Thank you very much for your video as now i have some understanding. I have always been terrified of snakes and have witnessed them being caught and removed from the area but last night was a direct encounter. It is most thoughtful and compassionate of you to take the time to educate and teach us to be always cautious AND use your techniques to be safe. Thank you once again.

They are pretty harmless. Not very aggressive and eat other snakes and live in the jungle, if they bite you die, but they don't care about humans much.
