Snakes, including the venomous Cobra with its hooded neck ribs, are among the deadliest creatures on Earth. One sting from a Cobra can be fatal.
A viral video on social media showcased a child fearlessly playing with one of these dangerous reptiles, challenging the perception of fear associated with them.
In the video, the young boy can be seen grabbing the tail of a king cobra without any apparent fear or concern. Six-year-old Viraj Prashanth from Sirsi in Uttara Kannada focuses solely on interacting with the deadly reptile.
This daring adventure evoked mixed reactions from viewers, with some feeling terrified by the apparent danger while others expressed concerns for the child’s safety.
The video quickly spread across the internet, capturing widespread attention.
Commenters pointed out that these deadly animals should not be treated as toys for children to play with. They urged parents to closely monitor their children to prevent accidents or unfortunate consequences from such recklessness.
