A village in Vietnam is producing bottles of wine containing cobra snakes and scorpions.
The wines are being shipped worldwide and are said to be a natural remedy used to treat a number of conditions. The poison from the snakes and scorpions is rendered inactive by the drink and won't harm anyone who dares to try some.
"Forget eating the worm after downing your tequila - with these bottles of unusual wine produced in Vietnam, a tasty tipple comes with a far more potent bite."
