@Dasie hahaha... aahh, how I would hate to be in your shoes!!! :lol: Most of South Africa knows about this. I don't think you or the people that backed you ,Jan slang etc, are going to be taken seriously for a very long time.

If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

Glad to see this made its way onto your forum.

It's totally irresponsible of keepers to do this.
There is a great deal of difference between an eager man who wants to read a book and the tired man who wants a book to read.

I'm not your friend on FB Ryan, so I'm unable to comment on your photo, but you are seriously endangering your life here, you dont deserve to be keeping snakes, you clearly have no idea how. & when people warn you about what your doing, your all arrogant, your girlfriend seems to think your a hero though.... soort soek soort.

Stupid should hurt and I admittedly derive great sadistic pleasure when it does. The problem is that wankers like this in that photo will catalyse the doom of our hobby to the detriment of other responsible keepers. This is when name and shame becomes a necessity, somebody needs to go give this idiot the snot klap his parents should've dished out way back when the thinking first stopped, and take his snakes away from him.

Dude! That puffy pic is not cool! Most guys will agree that you never...EVER! barehand a puffy or any viper like that! Ok, so it's easy to tail say a cobra in an a desperate situation, but a puff adder's strike is so unbelievably quick! I have never touched a puff adder before (not a live one anyway) and I dont plan to! That is flippen stupid and that guy deserves to get bitten, no matter how much experience he has or how ''tame'' he thinks the snake is!

I would tail a large puffie before a cobra for the record, but that pic has little to do with tailing and everything to do with doff.

I see. For me I'd rather tail a cobra than a puffie. But I'd rather tail nothing actually... If you asked me if I'd rather handle a puffie or cobra with a hookstick or two then definitely puffie, but the problem with handeling a puffie with your hands is if it decides to bite it is too fast for you to react!
