Offering A Drink To A King Cobra

Did anyone catch this video of villagers in a drought stricken area in India trying to get a King Cobra to drink some water from a bottle?

Handler was definitely cool about it but guarded just the same. Glad they finally got smart and stopped killing so many...so much so that the rat population got out of control and then they realized (duh) that the snakes kept the population down.

Some people, I swear...

O'Hannah is one of those few snakes which you can see in the eyes it has actual thoughts. I love them much, and there are really amazing stories around (factual ones that is) about their behavior.
