Please enjoy this video, and watch until the end for an important message about snakes.

Know what to do if a snake bites you, either while attempting to defend itself, or in reaction to a feed response you triggered in the animal, and doesn't let go. Keeping Dwarf and Super Dwarf Reticulated Pythons requires planning. These majestic animals are highly specialized, highly intelligent, incredibly strong. Everyone knows about them. Yet, they are also incredibly misunderstood. They are not the indiscriminate predators many people believe, but rather do their best to learn to thrive in their environments, even in captivity. Those who work with them and are willing to listen and learn from their animals can develop rewarding relationships of mutual tolerance and understanding with their snakes. The pursuit of understanding them better has become a lifetime journey for some people. Even so, as with any worthwhile pursuit, we must plan ahead for times when things do not go as planned. We hope in sharing this experience, you can learn to see beyond the bias against these creatures the world has set against them, and prepare yourself in case of an uncomfortable situation.

Snakes are incredible creatures that ignite the imagination, and spark our curiosity of the natural world. They are capable of living in some of the harshest climates on the planet. They live in oceans, deserts, can climb, borrow, and even fly. Some produce natural compounds in their venom that can be used to save lives and heal diseases. They are often devoted, loving mothers, willing to fight and even die to protect their young. And yet, we fear them. Many people kill them on sight. Others subdue them to prove to themselves they have conquered fear itself. Few, too few... love them, and want to see them flourish. The truth is, they deserve our respect and admiration, even our protection.
