King Cobra , Chiang Mai
Whilst the King Cobra is not the most poisonous snake in the World it is the World’s largest poisonous snake. Billed as ‘the most exciting snake show in the World’, the King Cobra snake show in Chiang Mai is certainly a popular attraction.
Many snake farms extract venom from the snakes in order to study and develop anti-venom serum to treat snake bite victims. The normal procedure for extracting the venom is through the use of a glass receptacle with a membrane cover. The snake handler holds the snake just behind the head and places the glass receptacle for the snake to bite into the membrane. The venom flows into the glass receptacle. The venom is then used to make the vaccines. Sometimes snakes are also bred at the farms.
