In Search of the King Cobra
Snake Expert, Austin Stevens, features in this pacy, heart-stopping DVD as we follow him on his brave quest to find a massive King Cobra deep in the forests along the coast of South West India.
No other snake grows to the size of the King Cobra, but they are shy and reclusive moving quietly and leaving no trace. This makes his mission of photographing one of these massive snakes all the more difficult. Hugging the Arabian Sea, Austin ventures for days off the beaten track, along the way he finds other species of Cobra including the beautiful but formidable Spectacled Cobra and makes it dance by using his hands.
However the King of all Snakes remains elusive. Austin travels further North to the remote forests of Wayanad using Elephants to get him there. Eventually, with Austin near to giving up, it is a shed snakeskin that gives him his breakthrough. Sure enough a twenty year old, fifteen foot King Cobra is not far away and we document incredible footage of Austin handling the deadly beast and even managing to achieve his life long goal of touching a wild King Cobra on the back of its head.
