Wanna Grab a Cobra with Your Bare Hands?

I think I can safely assume you said, “No, I do not wanna grab a cobra with my bare hands.”

Most likely, there would be a few more expletives, but you get the idea. However, there are places in the world where a cobra might show up on your doorstep. That’s when you call an experienced snake catcher.

Suvith “Snake” Papu (no, I didn’t make that up), the fellow in the video handling the snake while taking phone calls, is an experienced snake handler. He answered the call when a family in Gurupura Kaikamba, India, found a 13-foot king cobra in their home. It seems the snake was checking out the family shoe rack.

Papu and his teacher, “Snake” Gangesh Bolar (nope, not making that up, either), were able to relocate and capture the snake. They then decided to put on a show for the people in the area, while taking pictures, as the video shows.

The king cobra was taken to the Pilikula Biological Park at Moodushedde.
