The Cobra Whisperer


It looks like a recreation of the Well of Souls scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, but for the Southeast Asian sandal-wearing snake handler, it is a day at the office as he chooses a snake for the day's show.

At one point, dozens of the creatures menacingly rare up and spread their hood as they flick their pointed tongues at the handler.

Several cobras make for him, but he casually grabs the venemous reptiles and thrown them several feet away.

Cobras are venomous snakes that when disturbed can rear up and spread their neck in a characteristic threat display.

They live in hot tropical areas in Africa, Australia, and Southern Asia and their relatives, the Coral Snake, can be found in the United States.

I went to a cobra show in Phuket a few years back. It was one guy in a ring with 3 cobras striking at him left and right. He would go up and kiss the cobras. He said you have 1 hour to live after being bit to get the anti-venom, and he said the nearest hospital with anti-venom was 45 minutes away. Pretty crazy.
