African Reptiles and Venom


African Reptiles & Venom, the first to deliver Snake Courses for CPD points, for Healthcare Professionals.


African Reptiles & Venom was opened in 1999, to supply snake venom for anti-venom manufactures.
African Reptiles & Venom is accredited and supplies snake venom to the South African Vaccine Producers (Pty) Ltd and many more companies to help aid people who have been bitten.

African Reptiles and Venom, present snake courses for the general public, outdoors people, field guides, farmers, snake keepers, doctors, vets, mining companies, developers, etc. In short, anybody that may come in contact with snakes or snakebite will benefit from these courses.

These courses were researched and compiled after a number of people had approached us for information on snakebite and the handling of snakes. Mike Perry who heads the courses has been catching snakes since 1965 and works professionally with venomous snakes as he extracts venom for antivenom production and keeps 500 snakes for this purpose.

We are FGASA (Field Guides Association of Southern Africa) approved as specialist courses. Those that pass the test will receive a certificate with the FGASA emblem on it. The Snake ID and Snakebite Treatment course is also registered with the WITS Health CPD Office and medical doctors and other health professionals that pass the test can claim 5 CPD points (Continued Professional Development).

African Reptiles & Venom holds various courses:
•    Venomous Snake Handling
•    Snakebite Treatment and Identification
•    Snake Awareness

We educate and inform people about snakes, their habits and behaviours and what to do when confronted by a snake, how fast to react when bitten and to help you identify whether or not it is a life threatening situation.
African Reptiles and Venom has successfully educated more than 5000 people in Africa. We aim to educate, protect and inspire.
