You’ll Have To Do Better Than Guzzling Snake Blood To Impress The US Military | Task & Purpose

During Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ two-day trip to Indonesia and Vietnam, Indonesian special forces concluded an elaborate military demonstration by guzzling cobra blood.

The real show-stopper came when camouflage-streaked soldiers wrangled various snakes including King Cobras, severed their heads with knives and drank blood on the steps of the headquarters building. At least one soldier bit into a snake’s neck as its tail whipped and curled and the troops belted war cries. He then knelt as a fellow soldier squeezed blood into his mouth from another snake.
