Soldiers in Lebanon follow a strange and weird way to display their strength. During a security convention in Beirut, commandos perform a variety of venturesome stunts to prove their energy and bravery. Some of the acts they go through are totally horrifying. Biting off the head of live snakes is the most bizarre stuff they are trained to do.
The demonstration of the daring stunts includes eating live snakes by bare teeth, pulling the heavy armoured vehicles with a rope, etc. Each year the completion of the commando training takes place with these unusual performances. Commandos have to demonstrate the acts in front of the soldiers. There is a traditional belief that every man must prove his manliness by biting the head of a live snake.
Even the Lebanese commandos do not enjoy performing terrible stunts, they have to do anyway.
