Baby sleeps soundly as he is protected by four COBRAS

A video that shows a baby in between four poisonous cobras has re-emerged on the Internet this week

For those who are used to seeing a baby surrounded by soft toys in a cot, this video should come as somewhat of a shock.

In the video, a baby is seen sleeping on a cot as four cobras take a defensive stance all around the child, who appears to be only a few months old. At one point, the baby appears to grab hold of one of the snakes, but the deadly animal doesn’t seem to be bothered by it.

Video that lasted less than one minute 37 seconds to be exact only did this initially alarmed those who watched. Why not, it seems the baby is wearing a red shirt was asleep.

In fact, at first glance it actually treats bald baby cobras beside the bolsters. Occasional hug him when he rolls over or change positions during sleep.

In the comment section on YouTube, some people are shocked that the baby never gets bitten. Others say it is just a trick used by snake charmers, and the snakes’ fangs have been ripped out and their mouths sewn shut.

‘It’s not Charming to abuse the snakes by tearing out their fangs and sewing their mouths shut for performance/money. Just because something’s been done for eons…doesn’t mean it’s right to abuse these reptiles,’ one commenter wrote.

It’s unclear where the video was filmed, but cobras typically are found in India and other parts of South East Asia.

The video, titled ‘Four Cobra Snakes Protecting Sleeping Baby,’ initially was posted on YouTube in October of 2013, and it received a fair amount of media attention then, as well.
