As we see in the video a person who has taken proper precaution by putting up gloves and other gears is slowly approaching towards the deadly snake so that it can drink water from the glass. The deadly cobra is then drinking water from the glass. After all, how deadly a creature may be, it needs water to drink. Every creature, including reptiles need water for survival to fulfil their thirst.
At this juncture, it is advisable that nobody should try such stunt at their own, because this involves high risk. One can die with just one bite of this snake. The person who is seen feeding the snake is a trained professional. Such persons have knowledge of how to deal with the situation in case the deadly snake turns hostile. Hence, general people should not try such stunt.
