Hi everyone!

I've always loved snakes but never been allowed to keep them as pets! Not at home (cause the parents were freaked out, not that I'm blaming them!) :roll: So even now I have to fight against the stigma where I stay currently, but that is another story!

I am trying to become proactive about snakes but need some help! Wondering if anyone knows about a course that deals with snake handling, including poisonous species? I found a course in the cape but I stay in PTA. Petrol just to much now I'm Afraid. :cry:
I have watched to many snakes die because of ignorance.... next time I want to save the snake from Ignorance. Unfortunately if I get bitten I won't be doing me or the snake any favours!
:redface:
Any help regarding this will be well receive! Thanks
