A 71-year-old Nigerian snake charmer simply identified as Audu has wowed social media with his ability to control snakes and make them do whatever he tells them.
In a video that was shared on Twitter by @MobilePunch, the septuagenarian could be seen telling his snakes to dance, which they did surprisingly.
At a point, Audu also put one of the snakes in his mouth and the reptile didn't hurt him.
Speaking about his skill, Audu said both his parents were snake charmers and he started charming snakes at the age of seven.
He said he has 10 children and all of them are scared of snake except one that is gradually learning how to charm the reptiles.
According to Audu, his snakes eat fresh meat and he takes them to different beaches and locations in Lagos to perform.
He said snakes do not like sun, adding that they get angry when exposed to it. Audu said one of his snakes has bitten him before but he was cured with his father's medicine.
