Highlights from the African Snakebite Institute Snake Handling Course in Klapmuts (2016-11)

Below are some highlights from the African Snakebite Institute‘s Snake Identification & Handling Course, held at Butterfly World (Klapmuts) on the 19th of November 2016.

The course started with a theory lecture by Johan Marais, one of the country’s most knowledgeable herpetologists and the author of several snake and snakebite-related books, followed by a written exam and then a practical handling session.

During the handling session the attendees worked with Mole Snakes, Puff Adders, and Cape Cobras.
