Obvious PSA of the day: Stay away from king cobra snakes on the golf course

September 09, 2016

The following video comes from Instagram user Edward Chuang. And if, like me, you've been scared of snakes ever since seeing Indiana Jones encounter that pit of reptiles in Raiders of the Lost Ark as a child, then maybe you shouldn't watch.

It's of a king cobra on the golf course. And it's positively petrifying.

Forget about gators -- even HUGE ones like Goliath in Florida -- this is the most frightening reptile to come across on the course. Did you hear that hiss at the end when some nut tossed a golf ball at it?

Needless to say, if you encounter one of these terrors while playing, stay away. In fact, a quick Google search shows the king cobra is the world's longest venomous snake. So check that, stay far, FAR away.
