Snake Expert shares how people interested in snake handling can go about

Josh Arnolds, aka The Snake Man, is a professional snake rescuer who established The Snake Man in 1999. Its sole purpose is to create a service for the community that will safely remove unwanted reptiles from homes and business premises.

He shared how one can become a snake handler:

"People that are interested in persuing a career in snake handling, can do snake handling courses. These are offered countrywide by a few institutions. It would be beneficial and highly advised to work alongside a professional for some time before trying to work with snakes on your own. This can be done by shadowing a professional snake catcher, or by volunteering at any reptile park, zoo or private entity where snakes are kept " he said.
