Snake charmer at Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India

6:05 AM / Posted by li i /

During my North India trip, I came across several snake charmers. It is true that these snakes are their only means of livelihood,but they cause serious hazard to snake population.Snake charmers either catch these snakes themselves or buy them from snake dealers. After they get a snake, they cut the venom gland or the snake and remove the fangs,thus rendering the snake safe for handling. After the venom glands are cut, the snake will die very soon.
