What do snake charmers use to charm snakes?

Great question Abraham! It turns out that although snake charmers use
types of flutes to "charm" snakes, the snakes probably can't even hear
the sound. Instead, the snakes (usually cobras) are standing up because
they feel threatened - possibly from the opening of the basket that
they were in. For a very descriptive article about this, please visit this website on snakes
