They aired it on Entertainment Tonight last night. Normally I don't watch that show, but I saw the baby/cobra footage on a preview commercial and wanted to see what it was all about. Apparently, the video is real and not doctored. ET's explanation was that the baby is from India, and they have some sort of right of passage ritual where the baby plays with a cobra. They feel that it's safe because the cobra's mouth is sewn shut.

So I was thinking some more on this. What if by chance the baby happens to come across a snake and they think it's a pet because THIS snake didn't bite it? The baby would start playing with it and it could get hurt. I think this is totally confusing the child and is just horrible

Well, by that line of reasoning, should children not be around pet snakes or dogs or cats because a wild one would bite it? PLEASE don't get me wrong here, though. I think everything about what this video shows is wrong. I don't understand the rite of passage and you can tell the snake is scared to death when the baby finally gets ahold of it. It seems awfully cruel to sew an animal's mouth shut too.

Snakes are aggressive by nature. Dogs and cats aren't. I think it's cruel what they did to the snake too.

Actually, my understanding is that snakes aren't aggressive by nature, only when cornered or in fear. Kinda like dogs. I could be wrong though.
Anyways getting a little O/T....

I think anything wild is aggressive by nature. That's why I said a wild one in my post. Have you ever come across a wild cat or dog. They can be VERY mean and dangerous.
