An Activist Puts Four Rattlesnakes in His Mouth to Protest Deforestation

There are people trying to raise awareness about the deforestation of the Brazilian rain forests, but this snake handler took it to another level.

He got some publicity by putting FOUR South American rattlesnakes into his mouth and holding their heads there for about 35 seconds, before letting them go.  He obviously knows what he's doing, but still . . . the venom can cause blindness and paralysis.
