    A U.S. Marine drinks the blood of a king cobra as part of jungle survival training during exercise Cobra Gold at Ban Chan Krem, Feb. 14, 2019, in Chanta Buri, Kingdom of Thailand. The Marines learned essential skills necessary for surviving in a jungle environment, such as making a fire, eating plants and alternative ways to stay hydrated. Drinking the blood of a cobra provides the body with extra nutritional to help it stay alive, but is meant as a last resort option. Exercise Cobra Gold demonstrates the commitment of the Kingdom of Thailand and the United States to our long-standing alliance, promotes regional partnerships and advances security cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region. The Marines are with Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Staff Sgt. Matthew J. Bragg)
