We are excited to share with you a link from Marc Jaeger which shows video footage of training in progress in Royan, France. He is accompanied by his colleague Bryan Grieg Fry and we're proud to see our mini and maxi pinners being used during the training.
Royan: learning to care for snakes, scorpions and other dangerous animals.
Taking care of rattlesnakes, scorpions and poisonous spiders, cannot be improvised.
Professionals working in wildlife parks must train to approach and handle them without endangering themselves.
Training takes place currently in Royan.
For four days, fifteen trainees meet experts from these animals at risk who learn them by example how to extract the deadly venom of rattlesnakes.
A popular venom by scientists to develop research in particular for medicines and that can be sold several thousand euros per gram.
