Shocking Scene Cobra Wrapped Itself Around The Neck Of A Sleeping Girl For Two Hours

This is video shows a cobra as it wraps itself around a child’s neck in India. The video has gone viral.

NDTV reported that the girl was 6-years-old and lives in Maharashtra’s Wardha district in India. She survived the ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ, even though the massive snake was wrapped around her neck for “close to two hours,” the station reported.

The station identified the girl as Purva Gadkari and said that the snake wrapped itself around the child’s neck as “she lay frightened on her side on a bed in her home.” The family asked her not to move and called a snake catcher, the site reported.

She stayed silent for two hours, the site says.

The little girl is lucky because Cobra bites can be dangerous.

According to Britannica, Cobras are “any of various species of highly ᴠᴇɴᴏᴍᴏᴜs snakes, most of which expand the neck ribs to form a hood. While the hood is characteristic of cobras, not all of them are closely related.”

The site says that Cobras “are found from southern Africa through southern Asia to islands of Southeast Asia. Throughout their range, different species are favourites of snake charmers, who frighten them into assuming the upreared defense posture.”

According to IBTimes, there was a similar incident recently involving a Cobra that bit a mother and two kids who were lying on the floor. That incident also happened in the Indian state of Maharastra, according to IBTimes, and the two children died as a result of the snake bite. The mother, although badly ɪɴᴊᴜʀᴇᴅ, survived the ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ.

In another viral snake video recently, a python was photographed with an exploded stomach in Thailand after it tried to ingest a cow.
