And another one:

SNAKE AWARENESS, SNAKE BITE FIRST AID, TREATMENT OF BITES AND SNAKE HANDLING COURSE

Presented by Johan Marais

Saturday 8 June 2013 at Heia Safari Ranch, Muldersdrift

 
E-mail: johan@africansnakebiteinstitute.com

Cell: 072-016-0034

Web page: africansnakebiteinstitute.com

 

The day starts at 09:00 sharp (please get there at 08:45) with a Snake Awareness and First Aid for Snakebite lecture that lasts around 3 hours. It includes snake awareness, identification, first aid for snakebite, medical treatment of snakebite and is followed by a written test. This module costs R600.00 per person. After lunch (there is a restaurant and light meals can be purchased) we do the venomous snake handling course using a variety of venomous snakes such as the Puff Adder, Snouted Cobra and Boomslang. The Snake Awareness and Venomous Snake Handling course costs R980.00 per person and includes the morning session.

I am a FGASA approved service provider and accredited by ISZS (the International Society of Zoological Sciences). I also do snake awareness and snake handling courses for NOSA, Travel Doctors and Inhemaco. Successful candidates are awarded a certificate in Snake Awareness, First Aid for Snakebite and Venomous Snake Handling. For more information you can also go to www.africansnakebiteinstitute.com.

The full amount will have to be paid prior to the course to secure your attendance. Employees of game lodges and corporate companies can provide an official order.

Dress code: Please wear long trousers and closed shoes/boots. As the afternoon session may be in the sun, you may want to bring along a hat. Please note that all snake handling participants will have to sign an indemnity form prior to the handling session.

Bring along a pen for the test.

Snake tongs, snake hooks and some of my books will be available for sale. Delegates that have any of my books are welcome to bring them along for an autograph.

I stepped on this little guys tail when I was on a hiking trip about 3weeks ago. Is this a puff adder?

I didn't exactly stop to measure it... But if I'd have to guess it's probably around 30cm.
I'm just glad it didn't decide to get revenge and bite me for stepping on its tail :D
