African Reptiles and Venom Courses and Training
African Reptiles and Venom, present snake courses for the general public, outdoors people, field guides, farmers, snake keepers, doctors, vets, mining companies, developers, etc. In short, anybody that may come in contact with snakes or snakebite will benefit from these courses. These courses were researched and compiled after a number of people had approached us for information on snakebite and the handling of snakes. MIke Perry who heads the courses has been catching snakes since 1965 and works professionally with venomous snakes as he extracts venom for antivenom production and keeps 500 snakes for this purpose.
