Blue Mountains Reptile Awareness

Reptile Displays

Blue Mountains Reptile Awareness provide a variety of formats in their educational shows depending on the needs of each client. Neville believes however, that his greatest skills lie in the area of the predominantly venomous shows that he presents in an approved mobile pit that can be set up either indoors or outside in a suitable flat area. For country areas particularly, where people on the land are more likely to encounter snakes than most city dwellers, Neville concentrates on the safe avoidance of snake encounters and how to react if this situation arises.

By the handling of the most venomous species, Neville proves to the audience that snakes are defensive not aggressive. First aid for venomous snake bite is demonstrated and discussed and the attending public gets to see the way in which various venomous species react to human intrusion. The shows are both educational and entertaining for all ages and have great authenticity being based on many years of hands on experience with reptiles both in the wild and in captive conditions. Many myths and fallacies are dealt with and anecdotes of Nev’s personal experiences over the many years that he has been involved with reptiles adds further interest to the presentations. Neville is happy to answer questions from anyone attending the presentations.
