A crash course in the professional and scientific work related to the field of venomous herpetology. The film covers diverse topics, including biochemistry, biology, law and public policy, conservation, venom collection, animal husbandry, antivenom production, emergency medicine, veterinary medicine, toxicology and toxinology. The film follows the personal and working lives of prominent experts in the field, beginning with their childhood interest through their professional careers, with particular emphasis on the sciences related to their work.
The film's closing credits begin with a dedication to Bill Haast, who was cited by many participants as having inspired both their childhood interest and their professional careers. Haast was solicited for participation in the project, but was unable to participate due to declining health and passed away while the film was still in production. See more »
Must See for Any Reptile Enthusiasts
If you like snakes or reptiles, you'd love The Venom Interviews. After watching the film, I feel that I learn so much about the herpetology. It talks about antivenins and its evolution, how to be a responsible venomous reptile keeper, the state of animal/reptile TV programs, snake bite treatment and a lot more. It's not really about the actual snakes and reptiles, but there are plenty of animal shots that satisfy anyone who want to see these interesting creatures in action.
Overall, the film is very successful in providing a good education on the subject, but it's also quite captivating with all the stories surrounding these interesting reptile professionals and serious hobbyists.
There are no other films like it; it will be (has become) an instant classic that all reptile enthusiasts NEED to see. Highly recommended!
