Stanislav Gailev has an adventurous appetite.

Stanislav Gailev was able to play in his first two NHL games earlier this year, but it appears he may be willing to cut his career short.

Galiev is currently vacationing in Vietnam, and he is experimenting with some awfully bizarre foods. He ate a still-beating cobra heart and drank a shot of that same cobra’s blood to wash it down. He got a round of applause for his accomplishment.

Just a couple of days earlier, Galiev had another (tasty?) meal.

Just had a scorpions for appetizer…. What???? #vacation #Vietnam
