We aren’t sure how Liu Fei learned he had a talent for shoving snakes up his nose and then pulling them out of his mouth. It could have been just a boring Saturday night.

But the 53-year old Chinese performer has certainly made the most of his freakish ability, spending the last three decades entertaining fans with this unusual snake trick. Only once during his long career did he swallow a snake — the poor little fella just died harmlessly in his stomach. Hopefully Fei didn’t attempt to pull him out of other parts of his body.

What happens if Fei gets a stuffy nose? Maybe snakes make good decongestants. We’ll just stick to the over-the-counter drugs.
