King Cobra Tries to Follow Kid Inside the House in Vietnam:

Shocked by seeing the deadly snake near the house, the child's father ran towards the child and picked him up. All the three rushed inside the house to save themselves from the Cobra. The viral video of the poisonous King Cobra shows it moving really fast towards the door from among toys before the family shut the door behind.

The snake then attempted to enter through the entrance, but it couldn't due to insufficient space. After a few more fruitless tries to get inside the house, the Cobra then moves out of the front yard. The video was uploaded on July 15 and has garnered as much as 229,628 views so far.
