Blaine went on to show Joe Rogan a new trick he learned in India. It left the comedian shocked. As the conversation went on, Blaine told Rogan about a recent case of him successfully kissing a King Cobra. He said, 

I kissed a king cobra in the wild. I worked with different cobras. I had a team around me that thought me how to move quickly and get out of the way...we had antivenom but I don't trust that. But it was amazing, it was incredible..we had an ambulance right there. It's the most scariest and the most intense thing I have ever done.

After hearing the whole thing, Rogan became impressed and concerned at the same time. Nevertheless, it was exciting. Blaine expressed it as one of the scariest and most incredible things he has ever done professionally.

One of the intriguing topics they discussed was the alarming invasion of Burmese Pythons in Florida. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported that the population of these invasive snakes exploded in just 20 years, raising serious ecological concerns in the region.

This conversation highlighted the pressing need for effective measures to control the Burmese Python population in Florida and protect the native wildlife and ecosystem. While talking about the reason behind this, Rogan expressed his bewilderment about the invasive species issue. He found it rather perplexing that exotic pets, such as pythons, were permitted to be kept and then released into the swamps by their owners. He initially believed this was the core problem. However, he later learned that another factor contributing to the issue was the destruction of a wildlife research facility during a storm, which led to the escape of pythons.
