Sapera

(Sapera)

Ali Khan, 16, has one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. He hunts poisonous snakes. Every hunt is risky, but without it he would not be able to feed his large family.

Instead of going to school, he works to support his poor family, including 13 siblings. Without a chance of finding a good job, at the age of 16 he decided to become a hunter of poisonous snakes. He hunts cobras at the request of hotels, public buildings or whoever calls him. He then takes care of the dangerous animals and eventually releases them into the wild. The sensitive animal handler is grateful for his livelihood, despite the daily risk of dealing with snakes.
