Heart-Stopping Moment ᴅᴇᴀᴅʟʏ King Cobra “Singing Lullaby” To A Sleeping Baby In India

This incredible film captures four king cobras standing guard above a sleeping baby.

In India, children are exposed to cobras quite early, it is like a feature of this country. The form of catching and enticing cobras is practiced in many parts of India.

The reptiles that were crawling on their stomachs even reached up and opened their hoods. It was scary, when the cobra opened its hood repeatedly to those who approached the boy.

They use such hypnosis when feeling threatened – but do not direct the action towards the baby at any point in the clip.

It is not clear where the film was filmed, but king cobras are mainly found throughout India and Southeast Asia.


The king cobra usually avoids confrontation with humans but remains one of the most ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs and feared snakes living in the forests of Asia.

They are the longest of the ᴠᴇɴᴏᴍᴏᴜs snakes, up to 5 meters.

Cobras’ venom is not as potent as other species but they produce enough in a ᴅᴇᴀᴅʟʏ attack to ᴋɪʟʟ an adult elephant.


The king cobra can grow up to 18 feet long and is found in India, Southeast Asia and southern China.

They are one of the ᴅᴇᴀᴅʟɪᴇsᴛ snakes on the planet, with the amount of venom released in one bite to ᴋɪʟʟ an elephant or 20 people. But animals are very shy, so they often avoid humans.
