Wen Xide the Snake Eater - Weird Appetite

I have seen many people eating beetles and bugs as appetisers but even they eat them after cooking or roasting it but one man in china eats snakes which are alive.

The man is Wen Xide Age 41 of Wangzhuang village, Zhumadian, china eats live snakes.
He said he has been eating snakes like this for the past ten years and it all started as a bet for a cigarette packet between friends. And after that it has just become a appetiser.

Wang Tianming, a doctor specializing in digestion at a local hospital, said Wen could suffer nerve problems and risked infection from the parasites eaten by the snakes.

But Wen told the press:

“From that first time, I became addicted to eating live snakes. It’s a bit smelly, but they’re very delicious.”

Some passersby have trouble watching Wen eat live snakes and a few have even vomited from the sight.

Wen says his son is now following his lead and has eaten eight live snakes this year.
