Hugs and hisssesss; That's the greeting you'll get from this female bombshell of a magician called Maria (The SnakeBabe) Gara.
Maria has been mystifying audiences for several years. Her shows are packed with action, comedy, mystery and more.
Her use of snakes on stage and off has garnered her a reputation around the world as The SnakeBabe.
Gara incorporates a wide variety of exotic reptiles in her show, such as Boas, King snakes and Pythons.
