Mentor

I really want to get into keeping venomous. I have read 2 book pertaining to the care and maintenance of venomous snakes but I feel a mentor would help me even further understanding some of the techniques. So what's the best way to find a mentor or even better does anyone know someone who keeps venomous snakes in Houston TX?

Thanks in advance,
Koshy George

I suggest checking out the Southeast Hot Herp Society.

Try finding a person with a venomous collection and assist that person with cleaning cages and pick his or her brain for info. Even a zoo or a snake park would do just nicely.

That's the plan. I already tried the zoo they aren't aren't accepting volunteers at this moment and most zoos do not allow volunteers to work with venomous snakes. It's a liability issue.

I will have a table at the ETHS Expo in two weeks.

Introduce yourself and I'll intro you to some local hot keepers that may be able to assist you. Friday night icebreaker is the best time for this. Just ask for me, most people there know me. I usually have a frozen margarita in my hand that night! LOL

Quick question, I am not a member yet, can I become a member on Friday? Or do I have to mail the application in with my check? And what time is the ice breaker on Friday?

Thanks again Mr. Cole

I believe the ice breaker begins at 7pm and you can become a member at that time.
