TEXAS SNAKE HANDLERS (2)

Yes, he's kissing the top of the head of a cobra. Fully fanged and full of venom.
These are the snakes that were in the sleeping bag with the Dude.

They put the guy in the sleeping bag, then put in a snake one at a time at the bottom of the bag and then they zip him up and he has to slowly pull himself out of the sleeping bag with out being bit in the ass or other parts.
I put the damn pictures in back wards..the start of it is from the bottom up to the snakes...sigh*

Public service or not. Them people need to find a safer hobby Like maybe freelance bomb disposal or cliff diving at Niagara Falls.

I've seen the big Texas snake round up on TV with some of the demos. Peta is pissed at Texas for the whole thing.

After reading (1) I knew this was going to be awful...and I still had to look at the pics and read your descriptions. Now I'm thinkin that there's gotta be something wrong with me. If there's a (3) I swear I'm not going to look at it. LOL!!!

nitty:well, it's not all safety ..ha..they are bat shit crazy too.
jan:well, you know how i feel about peta..they can kiss my redneck ass.
turqmoon:there are more..many more.
tex:i think they start out doing it cause it's 'fun' or dangerous. and then...it gets to be so natural..it's second hand to them.
debra:sometimes they kill them and fry them up ..but they keep the skins, head, rattles, fangs etc and make belts, wallets, canes,ear rings etc.
green:i dreamed of snakes all sunday night...
