I've seen that before. I'm pretty sure they removed the fangs and toxins.

Yeah that snake was probably a venemoid.

What the hell kind of shit is that? I don't care if the snake is "neutered" or what...that is just fucked up.

Nah, I think the removed the fangs from the Cobra. It would be like getting bit by a gardner snake.

Cobras are cool as hell though, my favorite snake.

Snake charmers sew the cobra's mouth shut. It cant hurt the kid unless it pulls out the stitches.

Fangs are removed or sometimes the mouth is sewn shut. With the former being far more common.

Yeah, my friend who collects snakes and other reptiles told me about it. I swore I could see a small tear in his eyes when he was talking about it.

Except that now he/she may think playing with a cobra is a survivable play activity. Rates a "barbaric" behavior hammer.

The snake is "striking" without even opening its mouth. Even if it didn't have fangs, it would still try to bite,,,,,, if it could. The mouth is sewn shut.

––––-

India cracked down on snakecharmers because that was the main source of illegal snake skins originating from inside India (-in other words, snakes kept by snake-charmers are not expected to live long-).

Give Hajib a cobra from the London or Chicago zoo, and watch him shit bricks, before taking an ambulance ride.

people need to fucking relax, seriously.

it's part of snake charmer culture in india. their infants are exposed to these defanged and rendered-harmless cobras as a ritual for extinguishing the innate primate fear of snakes.

but don't let that get in the way of your xenophobia.

Link Posted: 6/16/2009 1:45:32 AM EST
If that snake had fangs, based on the size of the baby, said baby would have been unconcious before the film had ended. Defanged or mouth sewn shut. Still WTF though

I wasn't "worked up" about it, no more than a Hindu would get worked up about people in the USA killing and eating cows.

Methinks perhaps you need to grasp the whole concept here: the defanging/sewing mouths shut isn't just for the kiddies. All Indian snake charmers do it, with all the snakes they use. Usually it slowly kills the snake, but the charmers don't care about that, because when the snake becomes too weak to perform anymore they just skin it, sell the skin (illegally) and then go catch another snake.

I don't particularly care about Indians killing cobras any more than I care about people eating cats, dogs, horses or anything else––but there's no ancient mysticism involved in snake-charming, nor is there really anything involving skill. A dying snake is mostly what you need.

Yup, everyone who doesnt like seeing people force babies to play with snakes is a xenophobe; just like everyone who didnt vote for Obama is a racist.

Get real.
