Watch: Man kisses deadly King Cobra on its head; find out what happens next
A viral video showing a man kissing King Cobra from behind to avoid attack has emerged on social media.
We all know that king cobras are the world's most venomous snakes. If a King Cobra bites you, you won't be able to survive for more than 15 minutes. Because snake poison directly affects the nerve system, even a trace quantity of poison is enough to paralyse a human. Despite this, many brave people rescue or handle snakes.
One such video of a man kissing a wild King Cobra on its head in front of an audience has gone viral. The response of the snake to the surprise kiss will delight you. The man in the clip, identified as Brian Barczyk, famous for handling horrifying snakes and crocodiles, is also seen playing with such creatures.
Instagram user ‘snakebytestv’ posted this video and, in the caption, recommended viewers not to try this.
