Takes On Snakes

With the lengthy tread on snakes over on the regular forum yesterday, it seems as though many here have more than a casual interest in the critters. Years ago I visited the Miami Serpentarium and watched in a combination of awe and horror as Bill Haast milked a number of venimous snakes, including king cobras! He's one, interesting character, and at nearly 100 years of age, he's still at it in a laboratory in Punta Gorda. Thought that those who aren't familiar with him might find this interesting.

    Hey Rascal, Glad to hear he is still at it. He has been a real pioneer and has saved many a life.

    Bill has been bitten so many times that he's practically immune to the strongest venom. Ammazingly, he still keeps his resistance up with regular injections of venom! I could never imagine a life that involved lethal serpents, but Haast has, and he is a legend among legends!!
