    There is a website worth having a look at that has a heap of information on snakes and what to do to reduce the chance of being bitten by one - check out www.workingwithwildlifeusa.com.

    There are snake bite first aid sheets that you can download for free and they also have an e-Book that you can buy and an online awareness course that you can do - it is well worth a look.
