i had a venomoid cobra for 7 years.

i never was bitten but i treated it like it had venom

every 6 months i would let it strike a mouse to make sure it was still a venomoid.
it is not the type of snake that should be handled. what you may have seen as funny was the snake looking and threatening everything that moves. when you see the hood of the cobra that is a threatening pose.
this is a animal to be looked at not handled.
