During the night, the sacred snake Lébé comes to clean him and to transfer wisdom.He does not walk everywhere. When he must leave his place, that is very very rare, he is carried by people. His meal is cooked by a wise and old woman or a little girl. He washes himself only once a year. He always wears a red hat.
