Fangs a lot, says cobra.   (Wikipedia)

(Newser) – That's one gutsy farmer. A Nepalese man bitten by a cobra in his rice paddy turned the tables on the creature and repeatedly bit the snake. "A snake charmer told me that if a snake bites you, bite it until it is dead and nothing will happen to you," Mohammed Salmodin explained to the BBC. Salmodin has been released from a local hospital after treatment. The snake is dead. Don't try Salmodin's stunt at home. There are some 20,000 cobra bites in Nepal each year, resulting in close to 1,000 deaths
