What a great thread! That looked like a thoroughly fascinating day, and you looked very confident with the snakes

Lots of terrestrial jobs there - im CRAP with them by comparison with arboreals... i have a baby gabby who i find sooo much harder to deal with than the several-feet-long-pit-vipers

Fair play to you - I get hot under the collar with cobras, they certainly aren't to be taken lightly! When do you think you'll look into getting your room ready for your licence?

Honestly it probably won't be for a year or so, I've got a bit of an issue with where I live so it'll have to be in my next house
