Michael has Type 2 diabetes. He is 34 and from Stratford, London. He keeps lots of snakes, including this seven foot boa constrictor shown with him in the pictures.
'The Snakeman of Stratford', otherwise known as Mike, posed with Aggro, his 7 foot boa constrictor hanging around his neck. Mike had a house full of snakes and although he was a nice bloke, this was the quickest of all the shoots with me retreating quickly to the nearby Westfield shopping centre for some deep breathing and a much needed latte.
