DUDE! This is crazy!!
US Marines drank cobra blood at a recent military exercise session. It was part of their jungle training in Thailand and its called Cobra Gold.
The point of the training exercise was pretty cut-and-dry - learn to survive in extreme conditions.
This event takes place every year and about 4,500 US personnel were involved.
Royal Thai Marine Instructors showed US troops how to drink cobra blood for nutrients when there's no clean water available. Bad ass!
