Snake Whisperer Is Best Friends With Cobras: BEAST BUDDIES

Snake whisperer Abu Zarin Hussin watches TV, plays soccer and reads bedtime stories to his 14ft venomous King Cobras. Despite being bitten eight times - once almost fatally - and ending up in a coma twice, Abu is totally devoted to his scaly friends, and has no intention of ever giving up his perilous pets. The 32-year-old, from Kelantan, Malaysia, followed in the footsteps of his snake handler father and became a specialist snake handler in the fire service. But despite the love for his work, Abu accepts that snake handling is not for the fainthearted. Videographer / director: Hashim Sakiri Producer: Nora Hakramaj, Ruby Coote Editor: Joshua Douglas
