My favorite snake charmer performed daily in the heart of the Djemaa al Fna square. When I first photographed him, he was messing with a trio of Black Cobras (one of which he is holding in this photo). I was told later that the snakes were kept in boxes lined with ice cubes to keep them cool and docile; they were only removed from their boxes for short periods to display to the crowd that inevitably gathered around this fellow.
