Date added: 16/12/2013 Wrigglies Juniors Handling Club

‘Start as you mean to go on’ (youngster gets the hang of handling snakes with Venom Defender Gloves).

Wrigglies Junior Snake Handling

This young lad’s name is Bradley woolner and he is a regular visitor to wrigglies in Dunstable.

He is very active in reptiles, particularly in venomous snakes and would dearly love to do their full venomous course. 

However as this is probably a few years off Julian Clare has been showing him a few techniques involving non-venomous/non licensed species. 

This has led to them creating wrigglies 'juniors' club where younger keepers can come and learn how to handle their pets and other animals safety whilst learning a few techniques which they can use as their hobby advances into keeping more demanding species. 

Wrigglies Junior Snake Handling

We look forward to seeing more from the Wrigglies ‘Juniors’ club, and in particular from young Bradley.

Wrigglies, keep up the good work!

Johann Jr Prescher from The Netherlands is seen here wearing ‘R8E 3180 Venom Defender Gloves’ during his Adder research in Drents-Friese Wold, The Netherlands.

‘Veldweek or fieldweek’ is  one week during the module of Johann’s study of wildlife management during which he conducts population research of the common adder. During this Field-week he found a few moments to search for the common adder, and gave his fellow students some information about this species. 

Using the ‘R8E 3180 Venom Defender Gloves’, Johann can pick the Adders up carefully and safely, without stress to the snake and allowing him to count the head-scales in order to identify them.

Snake Professional is proud to have equipped Rowland Griffin of Project Chicchan and his team of volunteers with Hooks, Tongs, Restraining Tubes, Probe Sets and Venom Defender Gloves. 

The aim of Project Chicchan is to conduct herpetological research in regions of the tropics where little or no research has been carried out. The research is funded by volunteer contributions who participate on the expeditions where they receive training and experience. 

In June of this year they embarked on an expedition to the El Petén region of northern Guatemala where they were investigating the effects of agricultural edges that border the Laguna del Tigre National Park. They have kindly provided us with some footage and visuals of our products in action.
