Huge king cobra lunges at man.

A man had a close encounter with death after a massive King Cobra pounced on him while he was trying to catch it with his bare hands. A chilling video of the incident has now gone viral online.

The video, which was initially shared on Instagram, begins with a man, identified as Mike Holston holding the tail of a large King Cobra and trying to control it. The person attempts to lift the snake off the ground while the serpent looks alert with its hood spread wide.

As soon as the man lifts the snake, it turns towards him and tries to attack. However, he escapes the attack narrowly, which could have ended really bad.

The now viral video has amassed over 5.6 million views on the social media platform thus far. Many have expressed their concern for the man for handling such a ferocious snake, that too with his bare hands.

“You get bit by that it's game over,” a user’s comment read.

Another user said that the person was “playing with death” and that he could barely watch the video.

Adding more details about the huge snake, Mike Holston, in the comment section, said that the snake was a 12-foot cobra which he found in a village. “12-foot cobra in the local village had to be relocated …he was full of ticks and had a spicy attitude…there's nothing like working with animals in their natural habitat,” he wrote.

Some were also horrified watching the snake getting manhandled. “Leave it alone,” one wrote.

Repeating a similar sentiment, another user said that he should “leave the king alone”.

Few users even vowed to never mess up with a snake like that. “Okay, I am definitely not picking this one up if you dare me,” one comment read.
