People tremble with panic when they hear the name of the snake. Because a person dies instantly due to snake bite. Despite this, there are many countries where people are not afraid of these snakes at all, rather they kill and eat poisonous snakes. This country is Indonesia. Here people not only eat dishes made of snakes, but also drink the blood of poisonous cobras with great fervor.
There is an old saying that ‘the bite of a snake does not even ask for water’ but it does not fit the people of this country because the people here cannot live without snakes. Actually, in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta, people drink cobra’s blood to improve health, while women drink it to make their skin beautiful. They believe that drinking cobra’s blood makes the skin shiny.
Cobra blood is sold in most areas of Jakarta and people taste it and drink it while walking in the evening. At the same time, some people eat its meat. In view of the increasing demand for blood, shopkeepers cut thousands of snakes daily. These shops open at 5 pm and close at 1 pm. The seller earns 5 to 10 lakh rupees in a night.
