Description

A king cobra resists being restrained prior to an extraction demonstration at a serpentarium in Central Florida. Extreme caution has to be exercised at all times when dealing with venomous snakes, and the restraining tongs of a second handler can be seen in the lower right-hand corner. Visitors are separated by panels of viewing glass, but that doesn't prevent them from having mixed reactions of fear, awe, and admiration for both the snakes and the handlers.
