Are you afraid of snakes? Do they creep you out? Then the Boa Constrictor Project in Bonito MS Brazil will do you a lot of good! It is basically a talk discussing these animals and many of our misconceptions around them. But, it is also practically a stand-up comedy show, because everything is funny, light, and entertaining.
The presenter handles a Boa Constrictor the whole time, showing that the project's animals are docile and safe. Once the talk has ended, it will be your turn to have one of the project's famous snakes around your neck for a picture.
Projeto Jiboia, the name in Portuguese, directly translates to Boa Constrictor Project. Though there are different species around to be seen, the snakes used in the presentations are all Boa Constrictors.
The presenter speaks in Portuguese only and there is no language support for those who are not able to follow.
