Snakes alive! Well, some of them will be.

They are the subject of snake expert and wildlife photographer Greg Watson’s talk to the Friends of the Botanic Gardens on Wednesday September 13 under the title Spoilt for Choice – How not to feed local snakes!

Greg, the interpretive officer at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures, says he is going to bring along some “live animals” to enliven the event. His talk will cover all species of snakes found locally, how to identify them, how dangerous they are and anything else people might want to know about them.   

An adventure man from way back, Greg started his working life collecting snake venom in the wild for anti-venom serum.  hen came a stint in the film world followed by time on a dive boat as a diver and then skipper.  Finally it was back to terra firma and Hartley’s.

The event starts at 6pm with a light supper in the amenities area behind Friends’ House.  $5 for FOBG members. $10 for visitors.
