(Scroll down for video) A man who was angry that people were cutting down trees in Brazil, decided to put live snakes in his mouth as part of a protest.
Arteval Duarte, also known as Snake Ninja, held a protest in Goianesia do Para, where he put four different kinds of snakes in his mouth for several seconds.
Duarte then released the snakes unharmed. Duarte, an anti-deforestation activist, is known for pulling off stunts in public as a way to protest the cutting down of trees.
Duarte has been handling and training poisonous snakes, spiders and other animals for the last 15 years. He has been awarded the Ninja Snake title for his skills.
He spends his time in the wild forests of the Amazon.
