CEBU CITY, Philippines—Netizens are sharing how they feel when netizen, Vince Saz, from San Fernando, Cebu shared their encounter with a cobra, a poisonous snake, last Saturday, July 8, 2023.

Saz told CDN Digital that they were hiking with some of his friends when they spotted the cobra.

It was their first time to see a cobra, known locally as “banakon,” in the area, that’s why they were so amused and scared at the same time.

Don’t harm them

While others are saying they were scared of this encounter, some are also sharing their thoughts about not to harm animals like this.

“No need to fear nor kill snakes as they avoid people. Just make some noise and tap the ground in advance to give them time & space to flee. They help keep the rat population in check among other things. In the rare likelihood of a cobra bite, go to the nearest hospital that has a ventilator if there’s no anti venom. Be more informed rather than be afraid,” said one netizen.
