Please don't try to do this!Today, I was going through various news-articles after returning from the official tour. A piece of news attracted my attention. A forest officer, CN Naykka, the Deputy Range Forest Officer of Karwar forest range of Karnataka, is helping a king cobra to drink water from a plastic bottle. There are many links and video links to this story.
I don't know whether this is fake news or true news. But even if this is true news, I would ask everyone not to attempt this. Snakes are very nervous and unpredictable animals and there is no record that they recognize a particular person. King cobra is the most poisonous snake of India, and it can kill even an elephant within 10 minutes of biting it.
So, please don't try to follow the forest officer of Karwar range of Karnataka. You may have to pay with your life.
