Awesome.

That man literally SLAPS a live cobra in the face. And IT BACKS DOWN.

Not to be a cynic but is he cleaning or is the job description "rearrange, annoy and generally lower the self-esteem of hundreds of cobras"?

Still very cool (as well as the references above).

OSHA?
PETA?

Barnum & Bailey?
Ford?
So many calls, so little time.

When he goes all "Ike Turner" on that cobra at 2:14 is awesome!

I wonder what the life expectancy of a cobra pit cleaner is.
 
2012-07-18 10:36:18 PM
I'm thinking that's a ton of defanged cobras. Which is just depressing.

Why did it have to be snakes?

That guy must have balls of steel. I bet it hurt the snakes if they bit into steel. Someone call PETA

Was he like a cobra vet or something? Was he looking for sick or dead or pregnant cobras? Im just wondering why someone would shuffle their arms around in a slithering mass of venom...

On the other hand it would make sense that some Cambodian cobra pit operation would feed some guy an ass load of cocaine or meth and send him in to amuse the crowd. I wonder how many people they go through a year?
 
2012-07-18 11:14:46 PM
Actually pretty cool to watch him tweak the Cobras with his head weaving. That's shiat is better than any nature show "let me use this stick" crap.

There is no way that at least one of those cobras is not going to attempt to take a swipe at him. Like someone said in a post above, probably de-fanged. Maybe even sedated and/or have had their mouths sewn shut.

Several lurch at him with their mouths open as he walks by them, so i think we can rule out the crueler of your two guesses.

I laughed when he slapped the cobra and it slithered away, I don't know how that guy can even crouch down with balls like that.
 
2012-07-19 12:02:11 AM
Don't you just hate it when you leave your cobras in a pile and they get all tangled up?
 
2012-07-19 12:20:48 AM
NOPE
 
2012-07-19 12:31:24 AM
In one shot it looked like the wrangler would purposefully wiggle his knee just out of Snakey's range as a Snaketroll (TM), then easily grab Snakey's ample neck as it predictably lunges toward the movement.
Charming.

Most likely removing mites.
Maybe it's a pet store and someone wanted to buy two yellow cobras

What is he doing exactly?

I don't understand the video.


Please use small words.

Honestly, it looks like a dude going through a pit full of cobras looking for ones that need some kind of attention. For some he picks them up, cleans around their head, others he bags and takes with him.

And it looks like the cobras also have their fangs, there's one that takes a lunge at his back early on that you can see clearly has fangs out.

That's a guy who has spent his entire life around cobras. That's not something you take a course in, you need to be dodging those things since birth in order to know them that well.

just reminded me of this video
baby plays with cobra

We really need to put some foreigners on Fear Factor. People like this guy are WAY beyond eating nasty shiat. And he could probably use the money to buy more snakes or something.
 
2012-07-19 02:23:41 AM
I'm the first one to ask this.

Who needs a pit full of 200 cobras?

Someone who pissed off MI6
 
2012-07-19 02:40:43 AM
All I could think of while watching him pick through the cobras was "Hmm, no...not this one...no, no, nope, no...not this one... Where did I leave that damned thing? No, no, no..."

My mind provided a monolog that went sort of along the lines of: "Nah too big, too small, too placid... Dammit! I know I have the perfect cobra for this occasion in here somewhere!"
 
2012-07-19 08:28:42 AM

consider this: Give me 200 mongooses and it wouldn't be so bad.


I'd take a few extra. Odds are you're going to have a few Riki Tiki Tapouts, and at the end of the day, I'm not sure I want to face even just four or five cobras personally.
 
2012-07-19 08:40:03 AM
I imagine that after work he gets really sad and drunk and wonders what his purpose is. He never finds the answer.

Also, why is there a room full of cobras? Not that I'm against such a thing.
 
2012-07-19 09:08:41 AM
Your move, Mike Rowe.
 
2012-07-19 09:43:26 AM
I don't care how brave you are, one of those snakes is going to bite you at some point just given the law of averages. They must have their venom glands and sacs removed. I'm sure it still stings when they bite him, and he's definitely pretty cavalier about that possibility.
 
2012-07-19 09:44:00 AM
Hell the fark no. I'm going to have trouble sleeping for a week now.
 
2012-07-19 10:12:32 AM
They should send Bam in to clean up. I hear he loves snakes Jackass 2 clip

darklingscribe: I laughed when he slapped the cobra and it slithered away


If snakes didn't back off from threats, as well as use posturing and dry bites, we would have either had to hunt them to extinction or be dying in droves. Most are pretty calm about even dry biting too. I've stepped close to so many rattlers when I was in el paso it wasn't even funny. Plus, thanks to assholes killing all the loud rattlesnakes (well, they kill all the snakes they see, but guess which snakes they are more likely to notice?), they are supposedly becoming more quiet as a species.

Not that this guy isn't any less badass for that fact.

"So, what do you do?"
"I de-tangle then cobras then clean their fangs"
"ffffuuuuuuuuuu"

I remember seeing this one a while back. After doing some research, I believe I found that they are de-fanged cobras that they use for mating... Then they can harvest the venom from the offspring to make anti-venom.

//or something like that....

I think he's looking for cobras with health issues.

it was either that or masturbate the elephants.

What did the five fingers say to the snake?

How's that go, again? You can pick your nose, and you can pick your cobras... but you can't pick your cobra's nose?

Just saw a new 35 mm print of Raiders at the Hollywood Theater in Portland, OR and savored every frame.

I'd actually only ever seen it on the small screen, starting many years before it was available on VHS. Friend of the family owned a theater, camera and rental shop... Of course I was admonished by my dad not to tell anyone I'd seen the movie at home and only select friends ever got to see our copy.

Blofeld?

I love how he randomly picks up the snakes and flings them to the other side of the pit.
