Abu Zarin Hussin, 32, from Pahang, Malaysia, became a professional snake handler while working in his local fire service.

He spends his days looking after cobras and carrying out activities with the snakes which some would think are impossible.

The handler educates people about snakes due to his lifelong experiences of looking after them.

Abu said: “I look after my snakes, King, Cheiff, and Clik Din.

I spend a lot of time with the snakes even though I have been bitten a lot in the past.

“I help others to learn about snakes for awareness which is important when handling them.”
