An unbelievable video of four cobras safeguarding a sleeping baby became viral on the Internet.
Although there’s no explanation where the video came from, the footage first appeared several months ago and gained more than 2 million of views. The video shows a sleeping baby in a company of four venomous snakes which to a great surprise of viewers do not attack the tot but carefully watching after him.
The reptiles are seen hypnotically rising and extending their hoods – a behaviour typical for them when they feel scared, while the baby is peacefully sleeping under the protection of unusual bodyguards.
The king cobra is the world’s longest venomous snake. It is considered to be a dangerous snake and has a fearsome reputation in its range, although it typically avoids confrontation with humans if possible. It is also considered culturally significant and has many superstitions around it.
