Honestly safe is relative. They are venomous snakes and are more then capable of giving a bite bad enough to put you in a grave. That being said many cobras generally don't bite at birth. I have heard many breeders say that till they shed and get their first meal it's less likely to take a bite. These guys are very defensive at this size and are quick to flare up. Extreme caution must be taken and "at your own risk". Not all cobras are like this, I've heard many say black pak's will come out of the egg opened mouth, hood and strike and then disappear back into their egg! I have two adult pairs of black pak's so hopefully I will produce them this comming season although I will not be risking this move. Free handling is not something I generally practice and this was a one time thing. I don't recommend anyone doing it! Thanks for all the kind comments, these are my favorite cobras and I'm extremely happy to be lucky enough to keep them alive in the hobby!
