In this photo taken on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, Lindiwe Mngomezulu, holds her pet snake named "Simba" a Burmese python as an unidentified young boy reacts while touching the reptile, in Soweto, South Africa. Tourists have long flocked to the home-turned-museum of former President Nelson Mandela on Vilakazi Street, a lively strip of restaurants, curio sellers and street performers in the South African township of Soweto. Now the area has a growing attraction: big snakes, and lots of them. Resident Lindiwe Mngomezulu allows curiosity-seekers to get a close-up look at the non-venomous snakes she keeps in her home, and she drapes them over tourists’ shoulders for a small fee.
