My name is Daniel and I live in Sweden. I placed and order at Snake Proffesional and the very next day I had an text-message, e-mail and one missed call from Mr. Kouijzer. I have been keeping and breeding Reptiles for more than 20 years and never have I came across that kind of support from a company.
Since I most recently started to Keep venomous-snakes I decided to have some support/extra protection...and during the last couple of years we all heard about saftey gloves and even had a look at them during our many trips to Terraristika Hamm (Reptile-Expo, Germany).
The gloves; also known as the Venom-Defenders are also frequently used by the crew at the tv-show; Snakes in the City. The Venom-Defenders gloves and some other TOP QUALITY things were shipped to me and after trying the gloves, also the hooks and tweezers, I am MORE than satisfied (even the rest of the family).
Very Nice Products...and Clem with company is truly service-minded and all over; Nice People!
Best of everything to you and Snake Professional! And we Will see you In Hamm,
Kindest regards, Daniel Cregård (Cregard Reptiles).

Hi Maureen, Till now, we are very happy with these gloves. We are mostly using them with young crocodiles, soon with Heloderma. None of my guys have lost fingers so far. So I must admit that the product keep all its promises!

Hi Clem & Maureen, Just thought I'd give you an update. I have been using the hook and tongs I purchased from you a couple of months back extensively in the field and would just like to tell you how pleased I am.
We have been using them on a range of species from Daboia, Naja and Bungarus. They have been great and I can't find a single fault!
I have recommended them to my friends in India and they are very keen for me to bring some with me next time I visit.

Being in the UK it can be difficult to get a hold of good quality snake handling equipment. Snake Professional made it very easy and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the snake hooks and tongs I have received from them. Whether you are looking for equipment for use in the field or at home Snake Professional is the place to get it from.
Many thanks, I look forward to dealing with you again.

To me, a good investment is one that works, is predictable, protective and fruitful. After more than a year of using the venom defender gloves and 43 years of handling and working with African snakes, I have come to the conclusion that the venom defender gloves are the very best investment in snake handling equipment that I have made. In my role as the snake relocator for the company that I work for and the district where I live, I often have to crawl into small potentially dangerous spaces after deadly snakes (just yesterday I had to clamber through a thicket of banana trees to retrieve the Forest Cobra in the photos from someone’s garden). In such places it’s impossible to use a hook or a tong. One has to go in with the hands and often not able to see exactly where the snake is.
The gloves that you see in the pictures have been used almost on a daily basis for nearly 18 months. During handling and training sessions, I have received bites from the 7 of the most deadly snakes in Africa multiple times whilst wearing the gloves (Black Mamba, Gaboon Viper, Forest Cobra, Mozambique Spitting Cobra, Puff Adder, Black necked Spitting Cobra, Vine Snake), sometimes purposefully to demonstrate the safety of the gloves. In the photos you will see that they are well worn but still going strong. They are an amazing product, worth every single penny.

Clem and Maureen are extremely nice people, with a real knowledge of the kind of equipment needed to safely work with venomous reptiles. I am impressed with the quality and pricing of all my equipment and have used it on a variety of snake genera and species.

I have used inferior products in the past but they did not last. Snake Professional endorses and markets the highest quality products found anywhere in the world. i.e. Venom Defender gloves, Gentle Giant tongs. I have been using them for some months now and have never been more satisfied. Over and above this, Clem and Maureen capture the true essence of “customer service”; they are prompt, caring and professional. I will not be going anywhere else to purchase my snake handling equipment.
