Two courses on snakes will be presented by experienced herpetologist, Hencke Marais, on 4 April at the Pretoria National Botanical Garden.

The snake identification course is from 8 am to 1.30 pm and the snake handling course from 2 pm to 6 pm. Hencke developed these courses over 16 years of intense study and practical research on the characteristics and behavior of all our South African snake species, with special emphasis on venomous snakes.

You wil learn how to approach, identify and safely capture, remove and release any South African snake. The identification course will also tell you more about the personalities of each species, the symptoms of snakebite and first aid treatment.

The cost is R500 per course and you’ll get a certificate for completing the course. For more information and booking, contact Linette at 012-843-5172/3/4 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
