Nigeria's “Snake Man” Saves Wild Animals

Mark Ofua, a Nigerian veterinarian, feeds and cleans ball pythons rescued from hunters.

Ofua runs a rehabilitation center, which also serves as a clinic for pet owners, in Lagos, Nigeria. Housed in his care are over 30 different animals, from pangolins to civets, baboons, turtles and even stray dogs.

Ofua says he is determined to change perceptions towards reptiles and wild animals, and wants to get communities to do more to care for wildlife. (REUTERS)
