We are pleased to have received yet another exciting feature from Paul L. Lloyd!

Hi Clem,

I had the pleasure of retrieving a 1.9m Forest Cobra from my General Manager’s house last week Friday.

Thought I would send you some pics of me using some of your equipment / gloves.

I’ve also included some info on the Forest Cobra based on my Weekly Newsflashes.

Kind Regards,
Paul L. Lloyd

Date added: Dec 15, 2014 Wrigglies DWA Course Reviewed


James's Whinnett is a part time assistant at Wrigglies and attended the course after seeing the team working with the DWA animals and after watching a couple of previous courses.
 
"For anyone interested in handling and keeping reptiles, especially snakes, I highly recommend the course provided by Wrigglies DWA at Wrigglies in Dunstable. The course takes you through the important aspects of health & safety and teaches you the practicalities of handling a range of venomous snakes, all in a very safe, controlled environment.
 
The course improved my knowledge, understanding and confidence of these beautiful but dangerous snakes plus I got to hold the alligator!
I really enjoyed all aspects of the course and look forward to putting my new found knowledge into practice! — with Julian Clare and Dave Clemens at Wrigglies."

"For those of you who don’t want to read through a lengthy review i’ll summarise in a few words….. Absolutely fantastic experience - don’t think about it just do it!" Jenni Wenneberg
