Don have you thought of making a list of all the beasts that have bitten the glove? Imagine if someone had to try and determine the cause of the envenomation if you punched someone in the mouth and cut him open releasing all the venoms into his blood stream?

I think these snakes are so underrated. Great find Mfezi.
I like candlelight dinners, romantic walks on the beach and poking dead things with a stick.

getting there, we cut the finger off the glove and we are framing it with all the names for marketing... it is over 30 animals... including the deadly

GOLDEN MOLE!!

Ooooh! - You handled a Golden Mole with those gloves? You brave man! :)

What salamanders did you get? Any pics? I think salamanders are very underrated, especially in SA. They seem to be a large part of the hobby in Europe and US.
