It has always been a dream of mine to swim with a wild cobra and in todays video we get to do exactly that.

    • Dingo I want to ask, is there a difference between Australian Deatg Adder and Pouf Adder. The color is not the same and the Australian Adder uses the tail as bait for the animals he hunts. What do you think about these two snakes.

  • Cool snake that cream color is nice I remember I watched this video about snake island of Africa it's an island in west Africa I think the island is on lake Victoria Africa's largest lake. There are people on the island only 100 fishermen or so the island is full of birds frogs and lizards so a lot of snake food the forest cobras on the island are jet black and pretty. The snakes aren't aggressive the people on the island aren't allowed to mess with the snakes because the snakes are the spirit animal of the island and the guards of the island. People and nature seem to get along quite well on the island. There are huts on the island and snakes hunt for rodents if I remember correctly one man was bitten but that's it other than that the cobras almost don't even know people are there the name of the island is musuamba island I'm sorry if it's not spelled correctly. The island is on the Uganda side of lake Victoria I believe.

    • @Code red No biggie I'm originally from Houston, Texas, and there are alligators out in the bayous and swampy areas. As I'm sure you know, Houston isn't that far from Louisiana, and is definitely wet enough for alligators. I knew exactly what you meant, even though you said "'gator". The fact that you called them 'gators instead of alligators told me right away that you were from the States. And as a matter of fact, it wasn't that long ago that I learned that there is an American crocodile. There's still a small population in southern Florida, but they're mostly found in southern Mexico, Central America, northern South America and the Caribbean. 🙂🐊
