I will go if there is one in the Western Cape.

Thanks Kev. That would be super. Just a note though - it's a reptile course - will lizards be discussed as well? There are a few things I would really like to know how to do but need expert advice.

Marion we cover all aspects of reptile husbandry and even though its more about snakes, the others are also discussed. Plus you can ask any questions you want.

The course will also cover safe handling techniques for exotic venomous snakes in captivity.

I'm also interested, but need to make arrangements to be off long in advance. The date will be the deciding factor.

You think working for difficult boss is difficult? :lol: try running a retail business that is open 7 days a week then even weekends become nightmares to get off.

Now you have enough time to plan.

The date will be the 27th of August. It will be at Otter lake outside Pretoria.

The only rugby on that day is Aus vs NZ so that does not matter.

Lunch will steak and chips or something similar from the restaurant. Price includes tea and coffee as well. Draught beer will be available for those who want to stay afterwards. First round is mine.
