Andy Laister visited a great team of volunteers at the Bali Rescue Centre. There he demonstrated our Venom Defender Gloves as he was entrusted to handle a Javan spitting cobra baby.
Click here to find out more about the great work Bali Reptile rescue does:
"The snake is a Javan spitting cobra baby (Naja Sputatrix). This baby is the very light form sometimes found both on Java and Bali. Most babies are a dull brown colour. At this size they don't usually spit but I was taking no chances.
This one was collected by Bali Reptile rescue who do a great job on Bali. They will collect any snake from any property on Bali. I was with them for a week in November working on a King cobra project. They are looking into doing radio tracking of up to 10 adult King cobras.
