The 30-year-old man from Slupsk, Poland, has been charged for exposure to grave bodily injury or loss of life and violating the Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, Polskie Radio reported Sunday. He faces up to five years in prison.
The man kept an Indian cobra and Gaboon viper in his apartment, both of which can cause instant death, experts say.
The man's snake collection will be given to a zoological garden in Poland.
