Snake Pharm Visit!

The Grade 1-7 students had an up close and personal experience with snakes of all kinds, when Snake Pharm visited Richards Bay Christian School for a live educational demonstration.

Fortune Sibiya, herpetologist and snake bite survivor, along with Donald Schultz, Discovery Planet’s Venom Hunter explained the importance of snakes in the environment as well as the dangers if they aren’t handled correctly.

The Snake Pharm team is creating a community based project in Hluhluwe, developing a new anti-venom to make treatment accessible and affordable to snake bite victims.

After the demonstration students and teachers had the opportunity to hold and touch the snakes.
