Tibetan Snake Catcher

Tibetan Snake Catcher

You might have seen videos of Indian or western snake catchers but probably not a Tibetan.

This video of Tibetan man catching a cobra, probably somewhere in a Tibetan shichak, shows Tibetan capable of doing that.

While the above video has a Tibetan man catching a cobra, the one below has a man catching non-cobra snake, very easily.

Seeing a snake in Tibetan settlements in India is not a rare thing as snakes are common in rural India.

The country has some 270 species of snakes, of which 60 are considered venomous and medically relevant, and with various levels of toxicity, according to Scroll.

India offers diploma course on how to catch snakes for those interested.
