I do come to KZN and do these courses there too. I will possibly be doing another one in July or August and will post it here.

Hi BV, any news on the course for Jul/Aug?
As a general rule, the more we learn about snakes and their ways, the less fear we have of them. This is usually not so with the Mamba.
The more one learns of his ways, the greater grows the dread of him.
He, without doubt, is the King of Snakes in South Africa.
For quickness, aggressiveness, and the deadly nature of his venom, he has no equal.

We are looking at hosting either a Husbandry course, or a Snake Bite & ID course on the 3rd November. The most probable venue would be New Germany in Durban again.

Can we have a show of hands where the interest lies, in order to finalize details.
