If I saw a snake slithering through the grass or hanging out in a tree, I’d be the guy who back-pedals. If it was a four-and-a-half-metre-long King Cobra, never mind backing away... I’d be running frantically for my life!

Then you get this snake expert from India who decides to grab the terrifying serpent by its tail after finding it in a stream, and he doesn’t even flinch when he picks up the massive reptile.
