The snake in the video could be seen staying still and does not display any signs of aggression.
The man in the video is Vava Suresh, a well-known wildlife conservationist, and snake expert.
Suresh is known for his missions to save snakes that are straying accidentally into human-inhabited areas in Kerala, India.
It is said that he has successfully captured 191 king cobras, and has rescued and captured over 50,000 other types of snakes in the state of Kerala.
Social media users praised his bravery and lack of fear while handling one of the most venomous snakes on the planet.
According to the National Geographic Channel, the King Cobras are the longest venomous snake species on our planet.
They are capable of standing up next to a full-grown person.
Not only that, but the amount of neurotoxin that they have in their body is also capable of killing at least 20 people.
Since the video was shared on Twitter, it gathered over 75,000 views.
