All about Snakes!!
Come join us as we share as much information as we can over two hours about understanding snakes and snake bite first aid. Full of hilarious anecdotes from snake catching over the last 10 years!
We will specialise in our local resident snakes: how to identify them, snake deterrents, scale counts, venom, their use in pharmaceuticals, snake avoidance training for you pets and much more. Plus the most up to date first aid, bring your kids have a play with the bandages and learn lifesaving first aid.
And don’t forget a free for all with questions… If I don’t know, I know how to find
out and love a challenge!
As there will be a live snake as part of the demonstration, and we want everyone to have a chance to be involved and at the same time keep everyone safe, numbers will be restricted to 35, including children.
