In the waters of Okinawa, Japan, there is an extremely famous poisonous snake. It’s Umihebi aka sea snake
This snake is known to have 10 times more venom than a rattlesnake or a cobra, with a body length of up to 1.2m.
Despite being so poisonous, here people still catch snakes with their bare hands.
Two 70-year-old grandmothers, Yoko and Setsuko, have been catching them with their bare hands for many years, startling others.
Looks extremely scary, but this species is a high-class specialty, available in high-class restaurants in Okinawa at extremely expensive prices.
If it is the first time eating snakes, many people may not dare to try it.
Snake meat is quite soft, people use chopsticks to pick up and remove the bones before eating.
Sea snakes after being de-venomed, stewed and cooked, contrary to their scary appearance, they have a surprisingly delicious taste.
This is also a dish that is said to be rejuvenating and nutritious. Currently, sea snake soup has become a dish that many tourists seek to enjoy when coming to the island.
Some places sell fresh unprocessed snakes for 1790 yen/head (~ 385,000 VND/head), while the price of smoked snakes will be more expensive.
Those who “hunt” this snake also have a significant income
