Volunteers to have your barefoot punched by a cobra for educational purposes...sign up here. Usually doesn't bite.

These people (India`s rural population) have been living alongside deadly snakes for millennia... then all of a sudden this fellow who most likely hails from a country of cool climate shows up and presumes to teach the locals what they`ve been doing wrong all the time: Snakebites, he says, are avoidable, and if 50 000 people in India annually die as a consequence of them, it is because nobody has yet come and enlightened them as to how to negotiate their way through a world teeming with dangerous snakes - snakes, that is, who are actually far from meaning harm to us, but sometimes can`t help statuating an example when, again, one of those Hindustani yokels treads upon one of them. Wonder why this fellow doesn`t get his head around the fact that India`s rural population has every reason to distrust a foreigner who comes from a country with, at worst, a minor snake problem to relegate their collective experience regarding snakes - experience gained in millennia - to the dustbin of superstition and prejudice, telling them that there`s no such thing as an aggressive snake and that the relatives, neighbours and friends who were snatched from their midst by way of snakebite, actually died as victims of their own ignorance. An outsider who probably never spent more than a couple of days in a snake-infested tropical environment has no shame to imply that Indian country folk whose forebears have been living under the constant threat of being bitten by highly venomous snakes for three thousand years, entertain a perfectly uncalled for attitude of hostility and fear toward snakes. While he doesn`t go so far as to unabashedly claim that there was no such thing as a dangerous snake, this is, as a matter of fact, the implicit tenor of his appearance before the locals in the village: Snakebites are nothing but a huge misunderstanding. Snakes aren`t out to get you, and if they do so nonetheless, it is because you yokels are lumbering about blindly instead of anticipating where the death-bringing critter may lie in wait. That these folks in rural India probably know better than anyone in the world how to *avoid* snakes; that death by snakebite is not due to a regrettable misunderstanding and a lack of education, but is simply a fact of life in much of the tropical world; a fact of life that could only be relieved if either the snakes or the humans (or both) disappeared; all these things simply do not occur to fellows like him.

Just like third snake Once I was also sleeping in my bedroom and anyhow a snake baby was on my bed and that time I felt that there is a rubber and I felt it under my back. I rolled upon that baby snake and when my mum was cleaning the home, suddenly she cried and I just waked up saying what happen? Mum saw that the baby snake was rolled in my pinky finger just like rubber and it was dead. And that was a little cobra baby.

Several years ago I read the diary of a British contract doctor to the British Army in India at the turn of the 19/20th centuries. In the 3 years he was there he treated close to 1000 snake bites. He had a very high mortality rate due to the lapse of time from bite to treatment, often 2 hours or more. He found if the patient reached him within one hour he had a good chance of saving that person. "The Golden Hour" was in effect back then.

Fantastic video from a legend, offering great advice on how to prevent unnecessary snake bites. The one thing that shocked me is how can any human being sleep outside and on the ground, with all these deadly serpents in the immediate area. That is surely tempting death and being incredibly stupid.

It is cooler to sleep outside when your home is not cooled in a hot and humid environment. Sleep-deprivation is miserable and dangerous in it's own rite, so please don't judge someone by calling them stupid unless you have all the facts. Peace.

If the snake did not have intention to bite & it's just a harmless tap on the foot, 50,000 people annually wouldn't die from snake bite's!!!

not quite,the cobra is not a rat eater it's a snake-eater,they're not hunting the rat they're hunting the snake that eats the rat,and as for being scared of you a large king cobra is absolutely NOT scared of a 5'9 human when it's easily 8ft+ and knows it can kill a bull elephant..and using a torch is the most common reason to be bitten by any pit viper they see the heat..the information isn't quite accurate
