You can hold my snake for $1

This photo was taken on Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia. When touring the lake, you'll find smaller speed boats zipping alongside trying to sell various goods. Sometimes these boats have children with snakes around their necks, asking if tourists would like to take a photo with their snake. These children are not only fearless with handling these creatures, but they are also not shy in jumping onto your tour boat to see if they can earn your business!
