One user wrote, ''The video of this gigantic king cobra standing as tall as a human proves the dangers of facing the reptile. As shared by #IFS officer Susanta Nanda, it's enough to bring chills down one's spine.''
Another commented, ''Frightening sight.'' A third said, ''Send shivers down the spine,'' while a fourth added, ‘' Snakes have always fascinated. This one is just jaw-dropping!'' Yet another added, ''That would scare the hell out of me seeing a snake as tall as I am? Don't stand in my way as I am out of here!''
King cobra, one of the most venomous snake in the world, is also among the longest venomous snakes. An adult king cobra can be 10 to 12 feet in length and weigh up to 20 pounds (9 kg). According to National Geographic, they can literally "stand up" and look a full-grown person in the eye. The amount of neurotoxin they can deliver in a single bite is enough to kill 20 people.Click for more trending news
