Kuala Lumpur, July 13 (ANI): A female snake charmer in Malaysia has stated that she wants to set a world record by staying the longest with 100 poisonous snakes in a glass cage.
Puteri Nur Ariyani Saiful Yazan, 24, from Sungai Petani, is now taking part in a month-long snake exhibition and show organised by the Kelantan museum which began on July 6.
"I plan to set the record by living with 100 poisonous snakes, including black cobras and kraits, for at least 30 days," New Straits Times Online quoted her as saying.
"Currently no woman holds this record although a Thai woman holds the world record for staying with scorpions," she said. The eldest of four siblings, Ariyani has been learning from Penang snake trainer Saiful Abdul Aziz for eight years.
Ariyani said she has been taking part in shows around the country since last year to get herself adjusted to living in the glass cage.
"It could be boring but I will have access to television and the Internet besides an hour's break daily to clean up and refresh," she added.
Saiful, who is acting as her manager, said the record attempt would be made at Putrajaya at the end of the year. (ANI)
