Milking a King Cobra in the wild
We are excited to feature a story by the renowned Bryan Grieg Fry. Read his report of this exciting, important and needless to state dangerous exercise
When milking an over 4 meter king cobra everything goes (mostly) to plan.
The first bag was so smooth that I couldn't get any friction on it, so the snake came out despite our best efforts. But we recovered nicely.
Any plan only last as long as the first contact with the enemy.
Note our smooth calm movements.
Any idiot can piss off an animal, provoking it into a defensive display, and scream 'Danger! Danger! Danger!'
It takes a lot more skill to keep an animal calm. Safer for us and more ethical for the animal.

Coralling a king cobra to slowly and calmly guide it to where Kristina is waiting on the far left with the bag. The wisdom of Sun Tzu: always give your enemy an opening, but one of your choosing. Team work at its finest:
