About a third of adult humans are ophidiophobic (fear snakes), making this the most common reported phobia. Recent studies conducted have theorised that humans may have an innate reaction to snakes, which was vital for the survival of humankind as it allowed such dangerous threats to be identified immediately. This fear in them leads to kill the snakes.

“How can there be such a thing as a “good” snake?” you might ask. Snakes are a key component in the balance of nature. Small snakes feed on many harmful bugs and insects. Larger ones eat mice, rats, and other small mammals that can destroy crops or damage personal property. Without snakes, we would be completely overrun by these nuisance rodents. Also, snakes serve as a food source for larger predators such as hawks, owls, herons, and carnivorous mammals such as bobcats. Some snakes consume other snakes if given the opportunity. We are conducting a 3 day herpetology workshop in association with WWT to get rid of your fear. Hear we teach you to handle a snake without hurting them, rescue them, differentiate between venomous & non-venomous snakes, their benefits to this eco-system.
