Incredible photographs have emerged online showing an Indonesian snake charmer handling two huge king cobras without fear.

22-year-old Roni Kurniawan, from the Indonesian province of Riau, has learnt how to pet these highly venomous snakes that are thought to be able to kill an elephant with poison from just one bite.

Fortunately, Roni has defanged the scary serpents to avoid a potentially fatal bite. He rescued the two cobras from a local village after residents called on him for help.
