African Reptiles and Venom is the contracted supplier of snake venoms to the South African Vaccine Producers (Pty) LTD. (SAVP) a subsidiary of the National Health Laboratory Services (NHLS). SAVP uses these venoms for the manufacture of their polyvalent (SAIMR) antivenom.
Captive bred reptiles are sought after as they don’t have to adjust to captive conditions, feed better and generally thrive in captivity.
We can also source and supply other African Wildlife and birds for stocking zoos. Please let us know if you have something unusual that you are looking for. We consult in design of cages and fish ponds.

We take most of our slides ourselves. It is great to be able to illustrate a talk with quality slides. Commissioning of slides will also be undertaken for individual preferences.
