Must See for Any Reptile Enthusiasts
23 August 2018 | by kennis-58525See all my reviews

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!
