The canes coverd with snake skin, an exotic wonder that i mention of which it is not required to dwell upon. Especially made by the native and sell locally, it is a piece of rustic work that use locale materials. How to proceed: Catch a snake, cut his head off and take off his skin. Turn down the skin like an eel. Creep into the fresh skin, a wood stick beforehand prepared, a bit more stronghold for tensing the skin, that has sensibly the shape of a snake. Tie up the skin on the wood towards the neck Dry out. Later on tie up a handle and a ferrule. The cane is done. It isn't forbidden to try, as a first start, with an eel, the result wouldn't be so nice, but the animal is less dangerous
