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 (Read more Nepal stories.)
