One bite from the king cobra can kill 20 people – so why is this guy kissing one? Snake charmer Putu Edi, from Bali, Indonesia, loves getting up close and personal with snakes that could easily kill him in a matter of minutes. Here he can be seen kissing a massive king cobra goodbye before releasing back into the wild.

Edi captures snakes from local villages and releases them into the wild. We’re not sure if he kisses them all farewell, but in this case, he manages to do so by distracting the cobra and moving very, very slowly. No matter how slowly he moves, we wouldn’t recommend even thinking about imitating him.
