King cobras are not known to be the most tender of animals, so seeing a group of them surround a sleeping child as if they’re guarding him is quite fascinating.
We’re not sure where the video originated from, where the baby’s parents were or why there are even a bunch of cobras around a young child in the first place, but everything about it is confounding.
Although accidents with these snakes are rare because they’re not aggressive, we couldn’t help but be concerned about the baby waking up and alarming the reptiles into attack mode.
But we wouldn’t be surprised if the group was just showing a sensitive side as it isn’t unheard of for animals to show tenderness towards other species. Just check out the slideshow below!
