Catching snakes is a primary profession in Le Mat village in which the majority of people live by catching snakes. Most of people here from children, women or the elderly all can catch snakes. The tools for catching the snake are very simply, with bags for storing snakes and spade to find snakes. Time for catching snakes is mainly between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Because at that time snake go out to dry in the sun and in the evening we need to bring light to catch. To find a correct snake-hole, it is necessary to base on based on the living habits, the direction in moving and searching food of snakes. Catching snakes in summer is easier than other season because snakes often go out to dry in the sun in the period of 1-3 hours depending on the weather as well as snakes' demand. In winter, snakes hire in their holes for avoiding cold. These hole are discreet, clean, and certainly, because snakes live in these hole from generation to other generation,people these holes as "entrenched hole". Some holes are very deep with dozens of meters, and have many layers while there are also some holes which are very short and easy to find. It can be found several snakes, even a few dozen of snakes in a hole. If the entrenched holes are undetected or destroyed, they will be places where is reproductive year to year.

Typically such as the snake-hole in Hung Yen province, people found several generations of cobra, "old" snake with a few kilos, people can not break the hole because it has many carved stones. Normally,only one person is not strong enough to dig snake-holes, because these holes are very solid, with a lot of the way exiting,  therefore it can be smoked to make snakes go out of their hole.

Mr. Truong Ba Long ( Le Mat village) said: Once he dig the snake-hole, he must follow snake's trace from the banks of the pond to the foundation tiled deep as 10 meters, and he dig nearly a day to see the hole and caught the cobra. And Mr. Dang van Phu (Le Mat) who has caught snakes for 28 years, is regarded as the excellent hunter and with many luck. He sometimes has to go away his home for a few hundred kilometers, he catches average from 2 to 5 snakes per day. Once, he must burrow 10-meter hole long to catch the cobra in Hoa Binh .
