A snake charmer from Malaysia kissed the same species of venomous snake that destroyed his father with one fatal bite for coming TV series ‘World’s Most Talented’.
Amjad Khan from Taiping Town is known through Malaysia as ‘The Snake Prince’ since of his skill to charm snakes with a hypnotic method and the fact that he has been kissing them since he was one years old.
Coming face to face with a king cobra – the world’s major deadly snake – the 27-year-old daredevil performs the same stunt attempted by his father when he was bitten during a show in Kuala Lumpur.
Known by many as ‘The Snake King’, Amjad’s father Ali Khan Samsudin, who was contained in the Guinness Book of Records and was apparently bitten 99 times in his life, was powerless to receive action for his injury and died two days later.
A fourth generation snake Romeo, Amjad is recorded bracing the cobra from its box and placing it calmly on the ground before him.
Inactive down differing it, the snake directly lunges for him but he skilfully moves himself from harm’s way and begins the mesmerising process of calming it.
