Amazing footage shows an aggressive cobra yielding to a man after he grabbed the creature’s neck.
Reptile specialist Jarapat Srichantuk carefully held the hissing cobra which repeatedly tried to strike him in Chonburi province, Thailand on August 14.
The cobra was defensive at first but gradually tamed as Jarapat held its body and neck using bare hands.
Jarapat said: ‘This is dangerous, no one should grab the cobra with bare hands like this. I am only showing that it is possible to tame them if done properly.’
